Upcoming Events

Cold weather is here!

Just a reminder to send your child to school with warm clothing for the weather! We go outside every day, even when it is cold out so please dress your child accordingly! If your child is too sick or unable to go outside, please keep them home.

PELC Sick Policy

With the cold weather, comes the inevitable viruses and bugs! Please remember to keep your child home if they are displaying signs of sickness (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.) and/or are unable to participate in normal activities. 

Weather Related Closures

PELC follows the Moscow School District when deciding when to close for weather. If MSD closes due to weather, PELC will also be closed. We will send out text messages to all parents notifying them if there will be a weather related closure.

Holiday Closures

PELC will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, November 28th, 2019. 

The following Friday, November 29th, will be a half day flexible closure. If you are needing care on Friday the 29th, please be sure to sign your child up with Teacher Tami or Teacher Kayla no later than Wednesday, November 20th. We need a minimum of 3 children signed up per site to be open, and we will only be open until 12:00 PM. 

Parents' Night Out

Drop the kids off and enjoy some adult time! This month's Parents' Night Out will be on Friday, 11/15/19. We will be showing "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs," enjoying pizza, decorating cookies, and playing fun games! The cost is $30 per child.  Sibling discounts available! Sign up here!

Meet Teacher Kirstiana

Teacher Kirstiana is the lead infant/waddler teacher at PELC's Site 2 on Main Street. Originally from Salem, Oregon, Kirstiana has worked here for almost a year. She is working toward her psychology degree, with a focus on early childhood development at PSU online while simultaneously working for us full time.

Kirstiana says, "It is fascinating seeing the kids' developmental stages while I'm simultaneously learning about them in real time. I also love to see the world through their eyes and how they are always ready to learn more in every way possible!"  

She hopes to continue working with children and helping them develop by one day becoming a child and family social worker.
