Follow us on twitter as well @ppbcpreschool
Park Place Preschool is a Christian education based center. We began in August 2011 with a 3 & 4 year old program. We immediately saw a need and desire in the community for a toddler program. Our program enrolls children age 18 months and up. We follow the Bryant School District calendar, as our teachers are required to have Professional Development as well. However, on some of the extended holiday breaks, we offer a supplemental program. We open doors at 7:00 and close at 5:30. We serve a morning snack, hot lunch, and afternoon snack. For more information, contact Amber Crumby @ [email protected]
Wishing all of our amazing mothers the happiest of days because you are our happiest place! ❤️💙
STAY ALERT: The following message is NOT stating school is closed tomorrow (Thursday). The purpose is to make everyone aware so we are not caught off guard as we were three weeks ago.
With much of the state under a flash flood warning until Thursday evening, we will be watching the weather closely and monitoring the roads in our district.
IF flooding makes it necessary to cancel school on Thursday, May 9, we will make a decision no later than 6:00am. Parents will be immediately notified by phone, email, text, and the district app. We’ll also post information on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.
In the event school is closed, we will use AMI Day 2. Elementary students will do the work from their packets for Day 2 ONLY. Secondary students will receive their assignments through Google Classroom. Assignments will be posted by 9:00 am.

UPDATE: Fisher-Price Recalls Rock ‘n Play Sleepers Due to Reports of Deaths: http://bit.ly/2UflEjM
CPSC Safety Alert: If your child is 3 months or older, or if your child can roll over, stop using your Fisher-Price Rock ‘N Play
CPSC is aware of 10 infant deaths in the Fisher-Price Rock ‘N Play since 2015. The deaths occurred when infants (3 months and older) rolled from their back to their stomach or side, while unrestrained.
CPSC recommends consumers stop using the Fisher- Price Rock ‘N Play when their child is 3 months old, or as soon as an infant is showing signs of being able to roll over.
CPSC and Fisher-Price remind consumers to always create a safe sleep environment for infants: Never add blankets, pillows, stuffed toys, or other items to a baby’s sleep space and always place infants to sleep on their backs.

[03/25/19] Happy birthday Jody Petty (Jody Petty Homes)! Thank you for serving on our Board of Directors. We are blessed to have you!
Great reminder! Kids are kids! They need opportunities for learning, experimenting but they also need to be shown “how” sometimes. Be balanced. But above all, SHOW LOVE! Give that hug when it’s needed. Let them sit in your lap and cuddle. It’ll pass all to quickly!
They are only little for a little while!
“I am 2. I am not terrible…I am frustrated. I am nervous, stressed out, overwhelmed, and confused. I need a hug.”
From the diary of a 2-year-old:
Today I woke up and wanted to get dressed by myself but was told “No, we don’t have time, let me do it.”
This made me sad.
I wanted to feed myself for breakfast but was told,
“No, you’re too messy, let me do it for you.”
This made me feel frustrated.
I wanted to walk to the car and get in on my own but was told, “No, we need to get going, we don’t have time. Let me do it.”
This made me cry.
I wanted to get out of the car on my own but was told “No, we don’t have time, let me do it.”
This made me want to run away.
Later I wanted to play with blocks but was told “no, not like that, like this…”
I decided I didn’t want to play with blocks anymore. I wanted to play with a doll that someone else had, so I took it. I was told “No, don’t do that! You have to share.”
I’m not sure what I did, but it made me sad. So I cried. I wanted a hug but was told “No, you’re fine, go play”.
I’m being told it’s time to pick up. I know this because someone keeps saying, “Go pick up your toys.”
I am not sure what to do, I am waiting for someone to show me.
“What are you doing? Why are you just standing there? Pick up your toys, now!”
I was not allowed to dress myself or move my own body to get to where I needed to go, but now I am being asked to pick things up.
I’m not sure what to do. Is someone supposed to show me how to do this? Where do I start? Where do these things go? I am hearing a lot of words but I do not understand what is being asked of me. I am scared and do not move.
I lay down on the floor and cry.
When it was time to eat I wanted to get my own food but was told “no, you’re too little. Let me do it.”
This made me feel small. I tried to eat the food in front of me but I did not put it there and someone keeps saying “Here, try this, eat this…” and putting things in my face.
I didn’t want to eat anymore. This made me want to throw things and cry.
I can’t get down from the table because no one will let me…because I’m too small and I can’t. They keep saying I have to take a bite. This makes me cry more. I’m hungry and frustrated and sad. I’m tired and I need someone to hold me. I do not feel safe or in control. This makes me scared. I cry even more.
I am 2. No one will let me dress myself, no one will let me move my own body where it needs to go, no one will let me attend to my own needs.
However, I am expected to know how to share, “listen”, or “wait a minute”. I am expected to know what to say and how to act or handle my emotions. I am expected to sit still or know that if I throw something it might break….But, I do NOT know these things.
I am not allowed to practice my skills of walking, pushing, pulling, zipping, buttoning, pouring, serving, climbing, running, throwing or doing things that I know I can do. Things that interest me and make me curious, these are the things I am NOT allowed to do.
I am 2. I am not terrible…I am frustrated. I am nervous, stressed out, overwhelmed, and confused. I need a hug.

Parents - ✔ check your medicine cabinets. On Thursday, the drug maker Tris-Pharma said that additional lots of Infants' Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID) 50 mg per 1.25 mL — sold in 0.5 oz. bottles at Wal-Mart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar Services — may have higher concentrations of ibuprofen than what’s on the label.
