Things to remember:

  • Dress in play clothes - we can get messy!
  • Children learn through play and you are their first and best teacher. So be ready to play and get messy together!
  • Please do not bring a sick child or adult (Thank You!)
  • We would like to discourage the use of cell phones during group.  If you need to take a call, we understand, but please try to reserve this time for your children.
