As we enter the month of June we want to thank each and every parent who has shown such patience, understanding, and gratitude during the pandemic. The children have been such troopers during this time and we are amazed at how well they adjusted to the different changes. We know of many child care centers that were forced to close. But thankfully our Panda family was able to stay together.
We are all looking forward to getting back to normal. With that said we will let everyone know once we can start splash days, go on field trips and start allowing parents in the building again.
As a reminder we will continue to go outside each day, please send in sunscreen for your child. If you have not already done so please send in a weather appropriate change of clothes. We will be happy to assist you in gathering the fall/winter attire.
As always, if you have any questions, please be sure to reach out to us.

Summer Camp 2020
We are currently accepting children for our summer camp program. The campers will enjoy a special activity each day, such as cooking, arts and crafts, and STEM. Once we are able to the campers will attend a field trip each week as well as enjoying splash time in the back yard. Summer camp tuition is charged based on the days or weeks the campers attend. Please let us know if you would like more information.
Summer Reading Program
Life has changed, but learning doesn't have to stop
All of the children will once again be participating in the Marion County Library Summer Reading Program. The bookmobile is coming to Polly Panda as it has in years past. Due to COVID-19, the children aren’t able to go onto the bookmobile, instead, the librarians are bringing books, that have been sanitized. The books will be dropped off in the entryway for the children to enjoying. Once the teachers and children have read a certain number of hours they will earn prizes!
We know during these difficult times childcare has become a challenge for so many in our community, especially for essential employees.
POLLY PANDA & BRIDGFORD is OPEN and ready to welcome new families: Part-time, Full-time, Summer Camp openings are available.
Our Polly Panda family is ready to welcome YOUR family into our wonderful school (and amazing backyard!)
