Butterfly Infant


The butterflies had so much fun learning about under the sea, pond life, birds and fun summer activities. The infants enjoyed making finger painting art. The spring festivities were infused into the arts curriculum and handprints were featured this month. The babies enjoyed creating personalized cards for mother’s day. They also celebrated spring by learning songs, stories and colors. The infants participated in floor time learning and having tummy time. We also rode the bye bye buggy on nice days. We anticipate all the fun activities to come in June.

Grasshopper Twos


May had us jumping for joy as we learned about everything from animals under the sea to which birds fly and which ones don’t. We had loads of fun making Mother’s day gifts for our moms. We also learned about a lot of fun activities we can do over the summer.

Busy Bees/Ones:

This month the Busy Bees celebrated Mother’s Day and made gifts for our moms. We showed our appreciation to our teachers during Teacher appreciation week. We made flowers, ducks, and even a birds nest. We talked about animals who live under the sea. We made jellyfish, a octopus, whales and learned about all kinds of sea animals. We reviewed our letters, colors, shapes and numbers.

Pawsomes Threes


We had a great time in the 3’s class last month. We celebrated Mother’s Day, we talked about birds and how they live. Then we jumped into under the sea life and learned about jellyfish, octopi, and a host of other animals who make their home under the water. We made lots of cool things like rainbow fish. After talking about life under the sea and birds we made dirt cups for snack. It was a lot of fun.

Executive Director’s Corner

As we closed out this school year and prepared for graduation I would like to thank all of our VPK students and parents for making this a great and successful school year. We have greatly appreciated all of the volunteer help and involvement in school activities. We really could not do what we do without the support of giving parents such as yourselves.
As mentioned in May’s newsletter, you’ve participated in many fundraisers this year the proceeds of which go right back into the center. It is because of your support during these fundraisers that we are able to make Parks’ Place stand out among area childcare facilities and for that we wish to sincerely THANK YOU again!
Our graduation ceremony was held via Zoom on may 29th. I hope our families enjoyed celebrating our VPK Graduates as much as I did.
Planning and preparation for our Athletic & Academic Summer Camp “Road Trip Across America” is well underway. Spaces are limited so please register your child for camp in the front office as soon as possible.
Lastly, to those VPK students not returning for Summer Camp we wish you a happy, and safe Summer full of memory making adventures. Don’t forget to visit us next year, we can’t wait to hear all about your amazing time in Kindergarten! We look forward to seeing you again soon and remember, when your teacher asks how you got to be so smart, tell her it’s because you went to Parks’ Place Learning Center!

Thank you for choosing Parks’ Place!

Joanne Parks
Owner & Executive Director
