 Day School Handbook


 * During emergency weather situations we follow the Meridian Public and Lauderdale County School systems. Watch WTOK for school closings. 


The primary goal of our school is to offer a safe Christian alternative for parents who must return to the workplace at any stage of a child's life. We understand the many concerns of parents and offer a loving yet educational experience for every child in our care. All of our activites are developmentally age appropriate, even for "our babies". I would be happy to have your family become a part of our day school family. Please contact me if you would like to add your child's name to my waiting list or if you have any other questions.
