Dear Preschool Families,
We already miss your little ones faces and our family at STJP. We know that navigating this new normal is going to require patience and love. We will try to add new ideas throughout the upcoming week and links to different sources to give you optimum ideas to spend this time with your young ones at home. If you come across a link or something you would like to share, please let us know that as well. We pray that everyone will stay home and stay healthy.
