Central A & M Growing Together is a new program this year, implemented by the school, to support families in establishing a positive parent/school relationship, assist parents in helping develop the skills their child needs to be successful, and to strengthen their own parenting skills. Lap sits (birth to 2 year olds) and Playgroup (3-5 year olds) are a great way for parents to spend one-on-one time with their little one while interacting with other parents with similar experiences. During lap sits and play group parents will learn about child development and activities to do with their child at home. Children will partake in activities planned by the Family Consultant that will stimulate and develop skills appropriate to their age group. Other activities include family nights, a parent forum, and home visits.
The Growing Together Family Consultant is an advocate for families and can find resources parents may need in various situations. To find out more call MeLinda Hilligoss at Bond Primary at 226-4022 or visit the Growing Together Facebook page at GrowingTogether CAM for updates on upcoming activities and other information.
