The Discovery Center will be closed on Monday, September 6th for the Labor Day Holiday.

All parents will be asked to update information card with the start of the new school year.

Notes: Please continue to bring in snacks for the classroom.  A gallon of milk or fresh fruit is appreciated, though it is helpful if you can wash and cut the fruit as needed.  Other suggestions are juice, pretzels, crackers, cookies, and chips.

The new tuition rates go into effect the start of the school year.  Reminder, if your child is absent from the center you need to notify us.  You can call the center and leave a message, you can email us at pcdiscovery2003@yahoo.com or message us on the HiMama app.  If you know in advance of scheduled time off let us know so that you will not be charged for that time. 

Covid protocol:  As long as there are no mandates for masks or vaccinations we will not require them of our staff, parents or children.  If some families would like their child to wear a mask please let their teacher know.  As always if your child is sick we ask that you keep them home.  If a family member contracts Covid we ask that you inform the center.  If there is an outbreak at the center you will be informed and proper precautions taken. Please make sure your child’s vaccinations are up to date, they are reported to the state on October1st.  Children are also required to have a physical done each year.

 

Spoons and forks: In order to cut costs and be more eco-friendly we are asking that you send in a reusable spoon or fork with your child’s lunch.  These will be rinsed off before they are sent home in your child’s lunch.  Thank you.
