A Note From Ms. Trish

It feels like SPRING has SPRUNG here at Playday! We are loving the mild (WARM) weather. This has allowed us to fully enjoy our Outdoor Classroom and our playgrounds! However, we do realize that it is still February (WHAT??), so please check the changing weather daily and dress your child appropriately for outdoor play. It looks like we have a few more "winter" days this week.

Our fall registration is now open to new families! Tell your friends! There is still room on our roster for most classes. Don't miss out... Playday isn't Playday without you!

February / March Dates:

3/11-3/14: Spring Break - No School

3/20-3/21: Graduation Photos (4s and 5s)

3/27 and 3/28: Easter Parties

3/31: Easter Sunday

*******PLANNING AHEAD: Playday will close at noon on Monday, April 8th due to the eclipse. ******
