Can’t Find a babysitter or just want to bring your kids?

If you want to take this course but childcare is an issue we are thinking of having a story time/ craft time for the younger kids for parents who are coming to the program. We ask for a $20 donation because we would have to pay the person taking care of the kids. However we need at least 5 kids to make this worth it and so may not be able to accommodate.

FINAL NOTE: if you sign up with your child, please email us directly at once you have signed up for the course. We’ll notify you as to whether we can accommodate within a week of the class.
