Holiday Celebrations

At the Center we respect and value the different ways families choose to celebrate different holidays.  We try not to over-emphasize holidays, but to focus on celebrations of events that are meaningful and interesting to young children.  Holidays can be as stressful for young children as they can be for adults.  Therefore, we try to keep our environment and routines as predictable and “the same” as possible.   We welcome input from all the children and their families about special family celebrations.
