After school care- YMCA
The YMCA Afterschool program is in the planning phase for summer care and afterschool care next year. They have asked us to share this short survey regarding the need for after school care this summer as well as full day care Monday's starting next school year. Please take a few minutes to fill out this brief survey. If you have any questions about the YMCA After School program, please call the Pat Jones YMCA in Springfield. They will be able to provide more information about their childcare site in Clever.
We are so grateful for all they have provided the students this year! It's never too late to sign up to join, or send a donation. You can contact them by email at: email@example.com
If you are expecting parents, or have a young child ages 0-5, we have a FREE program for you. Feel free to check out their page or contact Paula Harvey at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are 100 days smarter!
Caring Connections- Conscious Discipline
Created by Master Instructor Kim Hughes, the Caring Connections Calendar features activities that strengthen relationships by practicing kindness, being grateful and spending quality time with those we love. Each activity builds connection while encouraging kind acts, helpfulness and positivity. Like connection, being kind and helpful to others is a biological imperative that is required for optimal brain development. It also releases feel-good chemicals and hormones, something we could all benefit from right now.
Similarly, focusing on the positive creates more positivity. Practicing gratitude offers significant benefits for our mental and physical health, including enhanced empathy, better sleep and improved self-esteem. The activities included in the Caring Connections Calendar may seem simple, but the impact they’ll have on you and your family is powerful.
