We also have a new and BEAUTIFUL way you can support of fundraiser. One of our wonderful parents and owner of lilly lane flowers has set up some awesome bouquet options for us. A portion of each purchase will go back to Polly Panda!
Donate $15 per package when you use the code PANDA to order a three-month HOME for the Holidays package! Enjoy flowers on Friday October 30th and your choice of dates in November and December. We'll give an additional $3 per bouquet if you choose pickup at Polly Panda instead of delivery! PURCHASE:https://lillylaneflowers.mykajabi.com/offers/ujWvzJya/checkout
Donate $2 per bouquet when you send a gift to Polly Panda's amazing teachers and staff with a "We're Thankful For You" $20 purchase.

All orders must be placed by Tuesday, October 27th.
When you arrive to pick up your child(ren) please be sure to have a sign with your child's name on it, so we can quickly and easily dismiss your child. The masks often make it a wee bit more difficult. :)
TIP: Click the button to download the Pick-Up Pass we've created, write in your child(ren)'s name(s). You can also slide it in a plastic sheet protector so it doesn't get crinkled in the car.
October's Employee of the Month is Debby Doughery!
Debby has been part of our team for almost 4 years. Debby comes to us with a BS degree from Ball State in Early Childhood Education. Debby has worked in the field of early childhood for over 30 years! Debby is the lead teacher in the Chipmunk room, which is our middle two year old’s. Debby enjoys all areas of working with young children, however her favorite, is having “conversations” with the children. We often “joke” that Ms. Debby speaks “ two year”. All joking aside Debby has an exceptional way of talking to the children and understanding their needs and wants. Debby is patient and flexible, which are two qualities you need in working with two year olds. In her spare time Debby enjoys going to the movies, reading and spending time with her family. Please join us in congratulating Ms. Debby and thanking her for her dedication to the field of early childhood.
