Workshops and Resources

The parent “workshops” offered several times each year provide opportunities for parents to get together informally with staff and with each other to discuss topics of special interest.  Each fall, parents are sent a survey to determine their choices of days, times, and topics for parent workshops.  If you feel you would like to offer a workshop for parents, or if you’d like to recommend a speaker, please contact the director.

The Center will also continue to send home calendars and newsletters about classroom events, as well as appropriate articles related to child development.  Parents who have a particular interest in or concern about an area of child development are encouraged to talk with the teachers or director.

We will keep you informed about speakers or workshops being held in the area that may be of interest to families.
