In case you’re wondering why you haven’t seen Ensieh lately, it’s because she injured her back while working at the centre a few weeks ago.  We hope to see her soon, rested and well.  In the meantime, we have Courtney helping us out.  She has her ECE license and has lots of experience working in daycare.

Leah’s last day will be on the 30th. We wish her a safe and healthy last few weeks of pregnancy.
