At checkout you are able to pick what school that the shirt will be delivered too. Thank you for helping in the fight against childhood cancer.

Love Monster’s is coming alive!
The classroom painting has started!

Someone was excited to see there parent after a long day!

Dr. Freedman once said, “Early art education helps children learn to make their mark on the world in ways that people will appreciate.” Below we have some friends working on their “Free Expression Art”. “Man aren’t they focused and determined?”

Welcome our new team members to the Nest! We are growing and so is our team! ❤️

We need HELP!
If your child is running a fever, has discharge coming from their eyes, unknown rash:
Please take your child to the doctor.
Please keep sick children home.

They will need a doctor’s note to be at school if the doctor says it is not contagious.

If your child is “ acting fine” but still running fever- they can NOT be at school. Anything over 101 is a fever.

If your child is too sick to go outside- licensing standards says your child should not be in a school setting. We are required to go outside everyday.

Our staff can not care for your children when they are sick.

We wash hands often.
We bleach and clean everything daily.
We launder bed sheets & dress up!
We keep the temperature in classroom at a cooler temp to keep germs from percolating.

We need your help!

At Robin’s Nest we celebrated the love we have for each other! Click below to see the fun we had at our parties!!
