We are following government policies regarding illness at the school. If your child is sick with a fever, runny nose, cough or other symptoms we ask that these students stay home. We will be monitoring all students and staff closely for any cold or flu symptoms in efforts to keep our school safe. We also ask parents to wait outside at drop off or by the door and that upon entry and exit all students must wash their hands.

- If you are a registered family, Please CONTACT PKD ASAP to let us know either way if you will need this service
- If you are not a registered family but would like to be put on a wait list, please contact PKD
We are doing everything possible to keep our space a safe environment. Along with a rigorous sanitizing regime we are not allowing anyone to enter our space during care hours unless they are picking up or dropping off children and having everyone sign a health declaration. Please contact us anytime if you have any questions and we will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.

What is Art Therapy?
Art Therapy combines the creative process and psychotherapy to facilitate self-exploration and understanding. Using imagery, color, and shape as part of this creative therapeutic process, thoughts and feelings can be expressed that would otherwise be difficult to articulate.
Working with Art Therapy
Everyone can be an artist.
Creative outlets boost self-esteem.
Art can be used as a tool for communication.
Art can be a container.
Artistic communities can foster self-esteem and connection with others.
Everything is a resource.
