St. Leo Catholic Children’s Center

Back to School….

Our school year is off to a wonderful start! All the children have settled into their daily routine and enjoy doing the various projects, games and activities teachers have planned. Lots of new friends are being made with both the children and families. In October, the Rochester Fire Dept stopped by and gave a lesson on fire safety to all the children then everyone got to sit in a real fire truck! We ended the month with a Halloween party that included games like bobbing for apples and eating donuts off a string. Coming into November our focus will shift to the Thanksgiving holiday and talking with the children about being thankful for all the wonderful things in our lives.

A Personal Note From the Director…

It is always difficult to entrust your child’s development to another person or team of people.  Heartstrings are tugging so very hard when our nestling ages a bit and we must let our little ones begin to fly on their own.  You can take  comfort in the promise that the staff at St. Leo Children’s Center is committed to providing a safe, pleasant and enriching environment for every growing mind, body, and spirit given to our care. Our team is honored that you are considering bringing your child to us and we are happy that you believe in developing your child’s spirituality as well as intellect. I look forward to talking with you about our program.

God Bless,

Rebecca L. Croteau
