PSED UPDATES

November 18,2021 
Like many childcare centers, PSED is currently facing a staffing shortage and we are not able to accommodate any more students at this time.  If you would like to add your child's name to the PSED  Wait List, please follow the link on the left hand side of this page. 
If your child is on our wait list we will contact you right away if a space does open up. 
Unfortunately, due to the this staffing shortage we will not be offering any Enrichment Classes through PSED this school year. It is our hope that we can offer some of these classes again in the  fall of 2022. 
Please feel free to reach out to Ellen Lenoch, PSED Program Director at

Thank You!
