Welcome to another great school year here at Peanuts (our 23rd!)! Some children may be a little nervous (some parents too) but rest assured our staff will take great care of each and every one of our ‘Peanuts’! Our goal these first few days is to get to know each other, and help everyone feel comfortable and safe. Each class will also begin working on September’s theme, “All About Me”, which will culminate with an ‘All About Me’ book displayed in our hallways at the beginning of October. Keep an eye out for our beautiful Peanuts’ faces on the covers!!
Snack calendars- Please note that if your child’s name appears on a particular day, he/she is the snack person for that day. Please bring in a snack and water to share with his/her class. Please try to send in healthy choices whenever possible. Please note that some children may have peanut allergies so it is best to avoid peanut products altogether if possible.

Meet & Greet will begin on Monday, September 23rd for our 3 & 4 year old PM classes only. Our staff will be in the back loading zone as of 12:40 and will meet your child at your car to walk them into class. To help expedite this process, please help your child out of the car and have them waiting to meet the assistant and walk into school. Remember you always have the option to walk your own child into class, we just ask that you find a parking spot in the back lot, along the railroad tracks, or on Main Street. (Please do not use the loading zone for PM drop offs. It is reserved for ‘Meet & Greet’ which will help free up more parking spots!)
Parking-We have permission from the town to use our back loading zone. If you are parked longer than 5 minutes, you may be ticketed! You can also park in the 3 hour lots including our back lot (watch out for 12 hour), lot 6 between the RRX & 7-11, across from 7-11 on Main St., and behind the laundry mat on Main St. (across from Peanuts). Please do not park in the loading zone for PM classes unless you are doing “Meet & Greet”.
“You & Me” classes! Registration has begun! Classes run from October-May. These classes are designed for children 18 months-3 years old. Classes meet 1x week for 1 hour and parents are expected to stay with the child and participate in all activities together. Our goal is to help our youngest “Peanuts” feel comfortable (by your presence and participation) exploring a new and stimulating environment both physically and socially. We will introduce your child to a variety of experiences in all areas of healthy development. Some of the activities planned are: storytime, music & movement, finger painting, playdough, simple arts & crafts, and parachute play. There is a $10.00 registration fee and the monthly tuition is $45.00.
We offer the following “You & Me” classes:
Tuesday 10:20-11:20 or Wednesday 10:20-11:20
Please make sure you have returned all 3 forms(Child Info, Emergency Consent, & Medical) ASAP.
Your child’s yearlytuition is computed at an annual rate which includes only the actual days of school. That amount is then divided by 10 months to arrive at a monthly tuition for your convenience. Tuition should be prepaid by the 5th of the month.
2 day classes $195.00 3 day classes $220.00 5 day classes $320.00
