We have an amazing week ahead!
Make sure to take a look at our calendar this week!  Don’t miss out on our music times, craft time, Playdate at The Playground Gym, and more.
I am feeling encouraged these days as a parent, since being a part of our Love and Logic parenting class this month (esp. with Laney turing three this last week!).  Thanks for those who have been able to come, share, and support one another. We have a second parenting class opportunity that is open to swap ‘n play families for a discounted rate. Check out the information below!
If you want to pay your Spring Session dues early, (Spring Session runs April-June) our website has been updated with the paypal options. It is always great to leave cash/check in the black mailbox as well, just make sure to fill out the payment log.
There is a lot of new information to share with you all below, and Happy Swapping!

Many parents notice at one point or another that their children have accumulated way more stuff than they ever imagined, and that their schedules our so full it requires a separate calendar just to keep track of all the activities.
If you find any discrepancy between the fast track life you and your children are living and the peaceful pace you where imagining as a new parent, please join Yvonne de Maat of Heart in Hand Preschool in an exploration of modern child rearing. You will come away from this series with some simple ideas you can implement into your life right away to bring about profound change and deeper connections…

Yvonne is a trained Waldorf teacher and Simplicity Parenting group leader. She will start a 4 week parent group in April which will look at the many aspects of the home; creating rhythm, clearing up the environment, scheduling, discipline etc. For more information please call Yvonne at 503 287 4465

Attention Pregnant Moms:
A note from a mom on our waiting list…
Hi Swap ‘n Play families,  I’m hoping to connect with families due from mid April to mid May who might be interested in trading birth doula services for an evaluation during my birth doula training. I will provide families support during the prenatal period, labor and birth and up to 6 weeks of postpartum. I believe that childbirth is a momentous event of birth for both babies and mom/partner into parenthood and am honored to nurture this emotional and physical metamorphosis. Please contact Jeny Kuss by phone (303.870.1693) or email ( to answer any questions or if you are interested in setting up an interview.I am currently completing my dula training. Thank you!
