Parents are always welcome in our classroom, so please feel free to stay and help or observe your child. Remember that children usually act differently when Mom or Dad are there.  Grandparents are also welcome to visit any time.   Arrangements should be made for siblings should a parent decide to spend time with their child in the classroom.

At Stony Creek children go outside daily with the exception of adverse weather.  Dress your child appropriately to the weather so they will be comfortable while outdoors.
