Join us for this fun hands-on, “make and take” workshop! Looking for some fresh, new, arts and crafts ideas to use with the children in your care? Put on your ‘play clothes’ and get ready to learn and create new seasonal projects for Fall and Winter. We will be covering ideas for Autumn/Harvest, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Winter, Christmas, New Year’s, Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, and more! Expect to go home with some new ideas to include in your child care curriculum, along with the projects that you create that evening. Be on the lookout for ‘Part 2 – Spring and Summer,’ coming in early 2011!

Eco-Healthy Child Care
Wednesday, September 22
10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Motherlode Holistic Connection
8 Court Street, Jackson
New information included this year!
“Go Green” and become an Eco-Healthy home or child care! Research increasingly shows that the first years of a child’s life are critical to shaping their future health and development. As a parent or child care provider, small changes you make can have a big impact on the children in your care. Now there’s help for anyone who wants to make environmentally healthy choices. By reducing toxins, such as chemicals in certain cleaning products and weed killers, you help prevent illnesses like asthma, certain learning disabilities, and even some forms of cancer. For these reasons, providing an environmentally-healthy, low toxic, setting is particularly important in the places children spend the majority of their time. Raffle prizes and hand-outs provided! This FREE workshop is open to the public, everyone welcome!

Grandparents Raising Grandchildren
Wednesday, September 29
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

This workshop will present and discuss information, resource sites, and programs to assist grandparents who are raising their grandchildren.
Presented by Brenda Bullington, this workshop is based on training from ‘Strategies,’ which is a nationally recognized alliance of professional trainers and organizers for strategic approaches.

Thank you,

Erika Simmons
