Are you aware that there is a non-chemical, quiet, gentle, peaceful way to resolve stress?Meditation allows us to focus on our "within" and it brings us to a relaxed state.

And it brings us an inner peace that re-establishes our mind-body-spirit connection.Join us for a "Meditation for Stress Management" Class with Robert D.

We are a group of local parents and children who meet once a week for an activity involving fun play. This group is designed for Pre-K children and younger and their parents; including parents whose kids are in school and would like the chance to interact with other parents. Open Gym: We will provide equipment for active controlled play. This will allow parents time to play with their children and encourage their children to play with other children (socializing). Equipment will include: gym mats, soft dodge balls, 4 wheel ground level scooters, cones, bean bags, and hula hoops (etc.). You can either register for a single day or for the entire session. Mama Mornings: A casual social support group for Mamas and their infants and young toddlers. This group meets every other week and is focused on the happiness and well being of Mama during the early years of the parenting journey. Topics of discussion may include yoga, field trips, baby item swap, cooking prep, or just simple Mama stuff. Come join us with your baby or babies for coffee and pastries and connect with others in a positive environment. The first week of food will be supplied after it will move to a pot luck type gathering.

9:00 AM - 10:00 PM    Mama Llama and Me - Open Gym
Are you a parent who is feeling like an overloaded llama? Then join us at the Mama Llama and Me Enrichment Group! The vision of the group is a positive environment where parents and children can come together to socialize and engage in fun, organized and educational activities. Whether you are a stay at home parent or you work full time it is important to maintain positive relationships on this crazy journey we call parenting. We are a group of local parents and children who meet once a week for an activity involving fun play. This group is designed for Pre-K children and younger and their parents; including parents whose kids are in school and would like the chance to interact with other parents. Open Gym: We will provide equipment for active controlled play. This will allow parents time to play with their children and encourage their children to play with other children (socializing). Equipment will include: gym mats, soft dodge balls, 4 wheel ground level scooters, cones, bean bags, and hula hoops (etc.). You can either register for a single day or for the entire session. Mama Mornings: A casual social support group for Mamas and their infants and young toddlers. This group meets every other week and is focused on the happiness and well being of Mama during the early years of the parenting journey. Topics of discussion may include yoga, field trips, baby item swap, cooking prep, or just simple Mama stuff. Come join us with your baby or babies for coffee and pastries and connect with others in a positive environment. The first week of food will be supplied after it will move to a pot luck type gathering.
