But please feel free to come on the day that works best for you!

Please join us for our FIRST PALS of the 2016-2017 school year.  This year we will focus on developing GRIT in our children.  We value your partnership as we all work to nurture your child's development in these early years.  See you soon!


What is PALS? PALS is for ALL families.  We recognize that there is no one right way to parent and not all techniques work for all parents. There are, however, more effective ways to parent, and our goal is to provide parents with a range of tools and strategies that they can have at their disposal. PALS focuses on critical areas of social/emotional development, educational development and family development by one-on-one time with your child.
