Swarthmore Presbyterian Nursery School has been reaccredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The school has met the rigorous standards since 1996, and is pleased to have done so once again. SPNDS is now enrolling for its preschool and kindergarten complement programs.”
Last Saturday, 22 members of Cub Scout Pack 112 led by Cubmaster Andy Rennick visited the firehouse as the Swarthmore Fire & Protective Association hosted a series of sessions on emergency preparedness. The fire department, police department and EMS team gave presentations to the boys on subjects ranging from fire safety to stranger awareness to calling 911. Dr. Kathryn Jones and the fire company’s Rich Cresson were instrumental in organizing and planning the event, which was fun and educational. Above (left to right,) SP&FD members Johnathan Cresson, Stephen Yavor, and Ray Devine talk with spellbound Cubs.
