August 2019 Basket Winner

During the month of August Families had a chance to enter into our August 2019 Basket raffle, by participating in our programs!

Our families in our toddler town program

Our toddler town program is an innovative program for our 3-5 year olds. Children learn about letters, colors, seasons, holidays etc. As well as getting to meet new friends from our community. Our parents also get a chance to meet other parents from our community!

Our Tender Moments

Our Tender moments is a program for children ages 1-3! Here is a picture of our infants creating sensory bags with their parents. It is a great and fun learning atmosphere for our youngest group. Infants learn how to engage with other children their age, as well as parents get to meet other parents in our community.

Backpack Drive

In August we held our annual backpack drive, where more than 300 backpacks were packed with school supplies and given to our community. This was thanks to our partners and sponsors.
