Virtual Programs from West Side Family Place
Maria, Sue Ellen and Eva invite you to a virtual “Singing Time” every Tuesday and Thursday, at 11:30 am. If you and your children would like to see a friendly familiar face and sing some songs, please join us on Facebook. Also, if there are songs, rhymes or felt stories you miss from our Circle time, let us know and we will add it on our list for future clips. We will also be doing a Live Zoom Circle Time every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month – we will update the details on our Facebook and Instagram page, please stay tuned for that.

You can reach her on our dedicated “Eva Hotline” at 236.808.7334.

Staying Sane at Home with Kids Webinar
From our child’s tantrums, resistance, playtime, to their questions of “what are we going to do today,” staying at home with kids has never been so ‘interesting.’ Dr. MacNamara discusses the new realities of caring for our kids and how to help them with their emotions, while trying to preserve ours at the same time. There is a 20 minute slide presentation and an hour of Q and A.
For our families who were not able to join the webinar with Dr. Deborah MacNamara and Eva on “Staying Sane at Home with Kids”: for parents of young children in the time of COVID-19, the recording is now available here. The password is RPG2020!
