Are child care costs hurting your budget? You could be newly eligible for financial relief through a child care subsidy. Michigan has made changes so that more families like yours can send their kids to high-quality child care while keeping more money in your pocket.


Live in the moment ❤️

We don’t appreciate the years of little kids while we’re in them.⁣

Because humans never do until it's too late and they're gone.⁣

While we're in it, we often wish parts of it away,⁣
the hardly any time to ourselves,⁣
the crawling across the floor to put away puzzles and crayons,⁣
the peeling off stickers,⁣
and scraping muffins and scrambled eggs off the kitchen floor.⁣

We wish away the tantrums,⁣
the constant fighting,⁣
the bad behavior,⁣
the non-stop laundry,⁣
and the exhaustion ALL THE TIME.⁣

We wish away every imperfect moment that makes our skin crawl.⁣

But one day, it will be over⁣
and we’ll miss it—

We’ll miss the giggles,⁣
the smiles,⁣
the “not wiped off” kisses,⁣
and chubby arms and toothless grins.⁣

We’ll miss being needed,⁣
the crooked teeth,⁣
the time spent together,⁣
and hearing “Mommy look!” every two minutes.⁣

We’ll miss who we are RIGHT NOW as individuals and a family.⁣

Because soon new people will be living in our house with us. Their faces and voices will morph into someone else’s.⁣

And they’ll keep changing.⁣
And we’ll be new people, too.⁣

So, let’s try to take in ALL OF IT—⁣
the bad, hard, and the good—⁣
and not take any of it for granted.⁣

Because I guarantee,⁣
one day soon,⁣
we’ll miss THIS.

Agreed! Thank you to Conscious Parents 🍁


"1. Art strengthens neural connections in the brain: in the first few years of life more than one million neural connections are made per second in the brain. This process is most efficient when a child’s senses are activated; art is a powerful way to do this as it has the ability to employ sight, sound, taste, touch and smell. From mixing paint colours to squishing play-doh between their fingers, art encourages the synapses in the brain to fire and wire as they experience situations that immerse their senses and ignite their creativity."

Many children, will naturally remove their shoes to play, climb and be outside. Dear Parent, it's okay.

It's okay to remove the shoes.

DYK that October is Infant Safe Sleep Awareness Month in Michigan? Stay tuned for a weekly tip in partnership with Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Follow safe sleep practices by placing babies to sleep on their back to help reduce the risk of sleep-related infant death. Back to sleep for EVERY sleep.


Babies ages 0-2 do not learn from a T.V. or tablet. They learn from the voices of their caregivers. The more they hear your voice, the more they learn.


🎶 Fall Fest presented by Lake Shore Public Schools is inviting our community on Saturday, October 22nd from 12:30pm-4:00pm at the John U’ren Stadium located at Lake Shore High School to an afternoon filled with music, food, and fun. Admission is FREE, but monetary donations will be accepted.

Guests arriving from 1:00pm-3:30pm will enjoy a collection of music from our Bands and Choirs from all levels led by Mr. Arnold, Mrs. Elkins, Mrs. Perryman, Mrs. Wischmeyer, and Mrs. Rueger-West.

Save room for lunch as Little Bros. Burgers, Full Rack BBQ, Go Cheez, Rachel's Cochina, and V's Barista will be joining us for a Food Truck Rally. These food vendors will be offering up mouthwatering fare.

Guests will also enjoy family-friendly, action-packed entertainment that will include a petting zoo and pony rides, inflatables, and a DJ between performances.

We are excited about an event that consists of meeting new people, sampling live music, trying new cuisines, and entertainment. Most importantly, we love supporting our students while we showcase the district's talented musicians in field performances.
