Program for Early Learning Support, PEPS, is offering a “Baby Peppers” group for the fall:
PEPS – The Program for Early Parent Support is offering Queen Anne Baby Peppers – a group for parents of 5-12 month old babies starting September 12 at the Twirl Cafe. In a PEPS Group, parents meet (with their babies), share, and learn in informal sessions facilitated by a trained volunteer. Each meeting includes time for sharing parenting highs and lows, followed by a discussion of a topic related to the joys and challenges of parenting. Baby Peppers meetings take place over 11 weeks and also include break time for informal socializing and connecting with other parents.
Baby Peppers is open to all families with babies 5-12 months old when the group starts. Some families have participated in a PEPS Newborn group but many are new to PEPS. The Queen Anne Baby Peppers group will meet every Wednesday from 12:30 to 2 p.m. starting September 12 at Twirl Café – located at 2111 Queen Anne Ave N. The program fee for the 11 week facilitated session is $155. Scholarships are available.
Local Hazardous Waste Management Program, King County, has put together a list of pesticide free play grounds/parks. This new map enables you to search by city or zip. A quick search showed that the crown of Queen Anne is lucky enough to have the majority of their parks to at least be in the low-pesticide category.
