ADS Early Childhood Center
Assalmu Alaikum and welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at ADS Early Childhood Center. We are very excited to meet all the new children and families that will be joining our community, and we welcome back any returning families.
The first days of school bring a great deal of learning for families and students alike. This newsletter has very important information about the center’s procedures. Please read it carefully and call us with any questions.
Our success is only by Allah, upon Him we place our trust, and to him do we return. We pray that this year will be a beautiful experience for our beloved children. May Allah ease this journey for us and make it only for his sake. Ya rabi’ ameen.
