Mother’s Day with Nurturing Families

Mother’s Day with Nurturing Families

Silhouette of woman and child flying a kiteMother’s Day was extended to Monday this year for the families in our Nurturing Families monthly Play Group and Parent Advisory Council. When parents were questioned about the most popular element of the monthly meetings, a variety of benefits were noted: time for parents to relax and socialize with each other while their children played; opportunities to swap stories and learn parenting tips; access to the ‘Giveaway Table’ packed with freebies, such as diapers, clothing, and bottles; and last but not least, a delicious pizza lunch.

During this Monday celebration, families, including some grandmothers, enjoyed a special Play Group party to honor the life-changing work moms and caregivers do every day. Each mother was given a beautiful long-stem rose to remind them of how important and special they are.

Nurturing Families is accepting new families! Expectant mothers and/or parents of children up to three months of age, residing in Washtenaw county, are eligible for a screening assessment. Contact Sheila Schaaf at sschaaf@csswashtenaw.org to learn more.
