Preparing Healthy Lunches

The Bristol Hospital Parent and Child Center offered nutritious tips and 
delicious samples of food to incorporate into lunchtime meals.  
Twenty children and their parents got some tasty treats and good information.

Bite-size Thinking

Because being smart feels good  

and because these children love to listen to 
good stories and do interesting activities this story time is a big success. 
 Learning how to ask for more information never felt so right
and creative thinking is encouraged and celebrated.

Take Your Child to the Library Day

Oh! What a Magic Show

Daddy and Me

 A ride on our magical horse

What a wonderful Take Your Child to the Library Day it was in the Children's Department.  Dads sang, played and read with their wee ones and who doesn't love to watch a movie while having lunch on a cold wintry day!  The festivities were topped off with rollicking magician, Ed Popielarczyk.
