Simplicity Parenting Workshop

Are we building our families on the four pillars of “too much”–too much stuff, too many choices, too much information, and too fast?  Join the slow parenting movement and learn ways to simplify and slow down your home environment, simplify your child’s experience, and find the benefits of filtering out the adult world.  Sign up here for this life-changing 4 week workshop led by Certified Simplicity Parenting Group Leaders Mat Riendeau and Meredith Merchant.

Dress for the low, not the high

While the weather is getting warmer, it is still fluctuating wildly! Even if you see a high in the forecast above 60 please send your child with layers and long pants. When they go out for snack at 10 am it may still be in the 40’s or 50’s, not to mention forecasts are not always entirely accurate. We appreciate your support in keeping the kids healthy and warm!
