Workshops and Resources

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

The Center will also continue to send daily news about classroom events, occasional newsletters,  as well as appropriate articles related to child development.  Families 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.
