Director's corner

The good news for the New Year at Ourday is that preschool is here for the children; they can come where the music, gym, and art add joy and movement to their day, where classes are full of children who have become friends for play and learning, and where teachers continue to offer meaningful activities and projects to make preschool days special.  We are here for you to come back in the New Year and staff will greet you and be glad you are part of our day.

 It is registration time for Next Year so be sure to tell your neighbors and friends and we will fill the rooms with New Year’s children for 2018-19.
