Dates To Remember

It's Back to School Time.....


As summer comes to an end, it can be hard to get back into a regular schedule -- for both kids and adults.


Jefferson DeFrees Family Center's Daycare, Pre-School, and After School programs are here to help ease your child back into school and help manage everyday stress associated with the back-to-school schedule.


We want parents and families to know that the teachers at Jefferson DeFrees Family Center understand common concerns kids experience at different stages of their academic life.


If there are any additioanl issues we can help you or your child with, please feel free to speak with your child's teacher or Daycare Director, Stacy Confer.


Let's make this school year fun and productive!






Here are some ideas for how your family can enjoy this festive time!


1. Nothing beats jumping into a freshly raked pile of leaves.
2. Take your family apple picking and bake apple desserts.
3. Get an early start on your child's Halloween costume.
4. Head to a pumpkin patch and enjoy outside activities such as hayrides and corn mazes. Then pick your pumkins to take home for carving.
5. Go on a nature walk and take in the leaves changing colors on all the trees.
