Love is in the air! We had so much fun celebrating Valentine's day last week with a dramatic play where the children made postcards to mail in our mailbox, pretended to make cookies, made chocolate play dough and even celebrated the 100th day of school dressed as super heroes like Zero the Hero!

There were so many fun activities getting the children to explore their five senses but my all time favorite is watching the kiddos during the taste test!

We are so excited that we were nominated again for BEST daycare! We know we have the best families and best staff and would appreciate your vote-
