Join us for our last Community Workshop Series: 'Raising Resilient Kids in an Uncertain World' led by Dr. Dana Suozzi, licensed clinical psychologist + parent coach.

Today's children are living in a world of so many uncertainties. The stressors they face makes learning about resilience an invaluable skill for kids to develop. Unlike many dispositions or traits, resilience can be taught! During this workshop, we will discuss the set of skills that allows people to move through challenging times, and thrive afterwards. We will review some of the steps parents can take to help their little ones reduce stress, build confidence, manage difficult feelings, and move through challenges and obstacles. You will gain tools to practice emotional flexibility and a growth mindset with your kids, and to embody resilience in your approach to parenting.

Thursday, May 12th, 7pm - 9pm.

We can't wait for tomorrow's Children's Clothing Swap - on the patio behind the Old Stone House (next to the turf) from 10:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. We've already collected piles of beautiful clothing and shoes in a variety of sizes that are ready for a second life. Come snag some for your children! And bring items (sorted by size) to donate, if you have them!

Because tomorrow's weather is iffy, we will post a message before 8 a.m. if we decide to either shorten the hours of the swap or move to the rain date (Sunday, November 14 - same time, same place).

Hope to see you there!
Have you registered for our first community workshop? Don't wait until the last minute!
We'll have the amazing Tamara Rubin, director and producer of the groundbreaking documentary MisLEAD: America's Secret Epidemic about the national crisis of childhood lead poisoning. She'll join us for a talk and Q&A, so don't waste any more time and register so you can have access to her documentary to view in advance.
This is a community-builder and fundraiser for our school brought to you by our Red Moon Wellness friends.

"We know that this is a very different year, and that normally you’d be coming in and seeing all the children playing, and everything that happens in this space. It feels a little cavernous and a little bit open, but what happens here is magic. What happens here is to see the spark of their creativity take on a life of its own and bring their ideas and thoughts to fruition. This is the world of early childhood where our children learn and explore and learn to love all the things that make curiosity a vital part of childhood. They find their voice here, and they find the way to listen to the voices of the kids in their class so that together we create a community." -Medina Khalil, Executive Educational Director

Tackling Picky Eating & Improving Nutrition

Tickets now on sale for our first Webinar Community Series. Tackling Picky Eaters! Thursday, Nov 12th, 7:30PM.

Does serving your child healthy food feel like a battle that you’re mostly losing? Do you deal with complaining, crying, whining, even gagging and throwing food at mealtimes? Does a family meal cause more stress than pleasure for both parents and children? We’ve all been there!

This discussion will be led by BFS parent of 3 daughters, Robyn Kitto, a trained Speech Language Pathologist who provides feeding support to families with children from birth to elementary age who struggle with picky eating.

Parents can expect to better understand the normal spectrum of picky eating, get support to improve their child’s intake of a greater variety of healthy food, and learn tools to reduce stress around mealtimes for everyone at the table.

This event is open to all!
