Just a few friendly reminders from the Director:
*To keep our children safe, kindly do not bring in hot beverages to the
playground and classrooms.
*For drop off and pick up, use the parking lot. Do not park in the driveway which is a fire lane.

nut-free snack for them.

daily basis. Take home all art work and papers.

Web based Child Care Management System
New this year, RPNS is now using a web based system to manage all our administrative tasks.
Our Assistant Director, Tina, and myself started training sessions in the
summer months. This new system will make our tasks more efficient but we are still trying to get a handle on all this new information.
Our thanks for your patience and understanding during this transition
