Our fun and exciting classes meant for children ages birth through 5 years old and their parents are scheduled to begin in January. Classes will consist of preschool activities with a breakout of parents meeting together to share parenting tips, and tricks, discuss similar parenting issues, make new friends and learn about resources.

These FREE Open Houses are a great chance to find out what our program is all about. Play with toys, explore sensory tables, do some art projects, and have fun with other families.
