Monday, August 13

  • Parent-Tot Class resumes, 9:00 – 11:00am
    Open to the public, this FREE weekly class for children up to 24-months in age and their parent(s) is a great way to meet other parents, exchange experiences, and provide an opportunity for the children to play together and engage in age-appropriate activities. We also read a book from PJ Library twice a month. New facilitator Lindsey Embree taught 1st and 2nd Grade in the Vail School District for 8-1/2 years prior to becoming a mother to two children: Emma, 2, and Isaac, 4, with her husband, Ryan. Both children attend CAI’s Preschool/Kindergarten. Various experts from different fields of child development and child-care will visit occasionally to share their expertise and provide opportunities for discussions. Feel free to bring your friends; it’s open to everyone! (PLEASE NOTE: We have a mandatory vaccination policy.) For more information, contact Nancy Auslander.
