Hello NLA families,
Thank you to those who were able to make it to our Parent Chat on Saturday at Crazy Love Coffee! No worries if you had to miss it as there will be another Parent Chat posted soon! We put our creative minds together and did lots of brainstorming.
I wanted to give a quick overview of what we discussed and what we have to look forward to!
First of all, NLA will NOT be following the upcoming February break! If you will be out of town and not attending please email and let me know! It is always important to let me know (especially in these winter months when our attendance is lower) if you are not attending. You can email, send me a quick text or send a message through our Meetup page.
On March 3rd at 11AM we are grateful to have Amy Bryant of Parenting Beyond Punishment and Wild Child Counseling coming for another visit. Amy is also trained in Hand in Hand parenting! Please RSVP on Meetup soon, so we can get a head count for the event. This will take place at NLA and babies in arms are welcome.
Our May Day Spring Festival is going to be even more magical this year! It will take place on Saturday, May 5th and we are offering local artisans and merchants booths for a very reasonable fee. Spread the word and have anyone interested in a booth contact me at Joyniss@bellsouth.net. We will be fundraising to support a few scholarships as well as $ to present our program at local Homeschool conferences this summer! We are also planning a Silent Auction! Look for more information soon. As always, there will be live music, face painting, yummy community food and our Maypole dance! Makes you want to jump forward to Spring doesn't it????
Sign-ups have opened for Mrs. Audrey's summer Artful Play camp June 4-9 for ages 5-10. This will fill up quickly! You can sign-up on Meetup or email Audrey at Audrey.firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We also be offering Wilding summer days as well as Mixed-age NLA summer days! Dates coming soon.....
If you know your plans for Fall please let me know! We will be offering three days of NLA Mixed-age and possibly two days of our Wilding program!
I am so grateful for this community and the nurturing environment that we create for children.
