Newsletter –   Welcome to 2019-20!

Welcome to another academic year at The Elevon. We had such a great summer with fun water activities, playing outside, going for walks, coloring with chalk on the sidewalks, and so much more. We are very excited to begin our 2019-2020 School Year with the expansion of our School Age program as well as the addition of two more Infant classrooms. Our School Age program now serves Quarterfield, Oakwood, Severn, and Van Bokkelen Elementary Schools.

Education, especially early education, is no exception. For example, there are some that say homework is bad for children and some that say homework is good for children...
