Dear Parents,

We want to send our best wishes to Samantha Gowan as she leaves us and starts her maternity leave.  We wish her all the very best and will miss her in daycare and school.  Welcome to Shirley Lefebvre who will be replacing Sam in daycare as an educator and coordinator.  Shirley comes to us with many years of daycare experience and we look forward to working with her.

With September behind us we can now look forward to October, a beautiful month here in the hills.  With the leaves changing and the smell of fall in the air here is a look at the month of October:
