Queen Anne Elementary invites you to a special ParentNet event for incoming Kindergarten parents during JumpStart Week
Let's talk about what it's like to parent our 5 and 6 year olds! Bring your questions and bring your wisdom too, because this program is run by QAE parents, for QAE parents, to help us be the best we can be for our kids. There are no "experts" talking, but lots of good conversation and reflection by parents that will make you glad you came. It's also a great way to meet other families new to QAE!
Who: All parents of incoming Kindergarteners are invited (there's even childcare, see below!)
When: Monday, August 22 from 6:30-8:30pm
Where: Queen Anne Community Center (1901 First Ave. W, Seattle 98119)
ParentNet brings together QAE parents of children in grades K-2 to talk about the challenges and joys of parenting our kids at this special age. We meet several times a year in the evening. It's a great way to meet other parents of kids the same age as yours, in an environment that's fun and inspiring.
If you're familiar with the popular PEPS program for families with new babies, you may find ParentNet to be, as one QAE dad said, "like PEPS but geared for your older child.”
QAE parents consistently praise ParentNet for creating meaningful conversations and helpful solutions to real-life parenting problems. There are no "right answers" or single parenting philosophy espoused - all the discussion, starting with picking topics to talk about, comes from the parents themselves, and the conversation is facilitated by trained QAE parent volunteers.
Childcare will be provided on-site for kids 4 years-old and up for a $10/family donation.
For more information, see the QAE ParentNet website or email Jenny Brailey.
