Kathy's Korner

I enjoy the days of summer and our times at parks, and at concerts. Being outdoors on a beautiful day has a magical effect on people. You see more smiles, hear more laughter, and feel like running and jumping.

This summer we hope to see you at our programs in the parks and our concert series. Once again, Melrose Cooperative Bank is sponsoring the Tunes and Tales family fun events. These are free and held on the lawn of the Beebe Estate, 235 West Foster Street in Melrose.

Remember to stay hydrated and don’t forget your sunscreen and hat.  

Peace and sunshine,
Kathy

Ages and Stages Developmental Screenings:  As parents, we want to know that our child is on track developing and learning all that they can. Through the Department of Early Education and Care, we have received access to the Ages and Stages Developmental and Social Emotional Growth questionnaire. The Ages and Stages screening tool is a great way to learn more about your child’s development.  You complete the questionnaire based on your child’s age in the comfort of your own home, and then return the information to the Family Resource Network. Once completed, you and a staff member can review the results and see what we can do together to help your child reach their full potential. If you have any questions, please call our office at 781-246-5187. 

Childcare and Preschool Information:       http://www.eec.state.ma.us/ChildCareSearch/EarlyEduMap.aspx
The Massachusetts Dept. of Early Education and Care website allows parents and caregivers access to a listing by town of all licensed childcare providers and preschools. Our office has a checklist of what to look for when visiting the sites. If you would like to see if you are eligible for financial assistance, please call. A staff member will be happy to speak with you about any questions and concerns.
