Quote of the Month
"And remember, also, ... that many places you would like to see are just off the map and many things you want to know are just out of sight or a little beyond your reach. But someday you'll reach them all, for what you learn today, for no reason at all, will help you discover all the wonderful secrets of tomorrow."
- Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth
September 3 - Carmen White (Butterflies)
September 26 - Heather Hampton (Daisies)
September 27 - Jourdinn Kent (Monkeys) - 2 years

Employee of the Month
Please put your hands together to help celebrate our SEPTEMBER EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH, Ms. Kyera Crowe!
Kyera joined our team two years ago working in our Two's area. She has been in the field of early childhood education for 11 years. She is a graduate of Mt. Vernon High School and is currently studying child psychology.
Kyera enjoys the many adventures that happen when you work with Two’s, including learning how to speak 'Two-year-old", doing messy projects reading stories, and even potty training. Kyera recently accepted a position in our Sea Turtle room which is for older Two’s and younger Threes.
When Kyera isn’t going on adventures with her kiddos she enjoys cooking, shopping, and spending time with her sisters. Kyera is a true team player, she is a dedicated and hard worker who has a great sense of humor, which you need when working with her age group. Please join us in congratulating Ms. Kyera on being September's EOM!
