Family Resource Program Update
Our Family Resource Programs have been vital for families during these past months as we navigate our rapidly changing world. Here is a winter update for everything we have been up to and how we’re making it work during this Covid winter season.
As you may remember, we moved our MotherGoose song time outside during the late summer and early fall months. That became a little more difficult as the colder weather set in. We altered the program slightly, and moved our new Story, Song & Rhyme time into the Family Hub on Friday mornings. We kept small groups. Unfortunately, we had to temporarily cancel meetups due to the new gathering restrictions put in place on November 19th, 2020. Our staff are working on a safe alternative and awaiting any updates for when it is safe to gather again.
We started up our Parenting Program, Nobodies Perfect Parenting, in November. We were very excited about it, as all our participants joined us through our Nourish Families program. The classes got off to a great start and going smoothly. Dur to the above restrictions put in place, we moved these classes to an online zoom platform and they are continuing on schedule. Our participants are very grateful to continue meeting and connecting to each other and our facilitator.
Our monthly craft activity bags are continuing as normal. December craft bags is called: Painting: so many ways. Consisting of, you guessed it… paint! Also includes various materials and suggestions for different ways to paint.
We’re adjusting to all the new changes and restrictions and navigating them with patience. Your patience is appreciated and we acknowledge how hard it is to change routines and schedules. We are confident we will be able to meet in-person again soon.
