  • Children need warm outerwear, including snow pants, mittens, boots, and hats for winter outdoor play.  Please make sure to label all of these items with your child's name.  We do take note of the outside temperature, and do not go out for extended periods if it is extremely cold.
  • We greatly appreciate your cooperation in keeping children home when they have fevers, bad coughs and colds.  
  • We follow Lasell College when closing for snow days.  I will change the message on the office phone (617-243-2355) to indicate that we are closed.  The information can also be found at, and on Lasell's snow line at 617-243-2208.  If Lasell delays opening, we will also delay opening.   If you have not yet returned your child's stay-day January schedule or his/her contract for 2019-20, please do so when we return.  
  • Parking and drop-offs are not allowed in the driveway/parking lot off Studio Road.   
  • If you use our drop-off extended day hours, please pay for this time by the end of that week.


As you know, Paula, our yoga instructor, missed the last Monday session on December 17.  She will be making up this class on Monday, January 7 from 1:15 to 2:00.


Brenda Callahan/Imagine and Move (she provided the entertainment at our Witchapalooza) is returning with her creative music and movement program on Thursdays, January 3 through February 21 from 1:00 to 1:45.  If you have not already signed up, but are interested, please let me know via email. The cost for the 8 week program is $80 and checks can be made out to Brenda Callahan.a


We would like to thank you for your good wishes and gifts during the holiday season.  Though certainly not necessary these gifts were greatly appreciated. Thanks also to those who participated in our mitten and hat drive.  The warm and cozy collection was donated to Family Access in West Newton.

We wish you all a very happy and healthy 2019!
