What a whirl wind! Welcome back to all our returning families and friends! It sounds like everyone had restful, productive, active, crazy holidays! Us too! 

And now we're getting right back at it with our Kids' Toy & Clothing Swap on Sunday Jan. 26! Art of the Week is up and running! The blog has been busy, too, with Johanna's recap of the madness and mayhem of our little scientists' experiments from the Big Kids' Club from December. 

All the details, of all of the above, are in the articles below!

Toy and Clothing Swap - Jan. 26, 2014
Our 2014 Kids' Toy & Clothing Swap is happening on Sunday, Jan. 26, from 11 - 3, so if you haven't had time to comb through the kid's closet, there's still a week to do so! 

Drop off your donations at the daycare before Jan. 24 to receive free admittance to the big switcheroo, and then plan to come back for coffee and treats while you have a look for play clothes. Or new boots... 
And the best part: 
For every item you take, you get a chance to win a fantastic door prize.
We'll have lots of stuff for infants, so if Santa left a new baby in your life, make sure to come check it out! Visit the event page on our website for more details.

Big Thanks to Friends and Sponsors! 


It's the new year, and we're so excited to meet all our new friends and families this month. Welcome! And to our old friends, THANK YOU so much for all your support!

And a super special shout out to our Kids' Clothing Swap Prize Sponsors!


Big Kids' Club December Update: Science Month Explodes!  
The first month of our brand new BIG KIDS' CLUB for 3 - 5 year olds wrapped up when we went on our Christmas holidays, but if you saw the Photos for Families, you'll have seen all the experimentation! December was Science Month, and the kids' interest was peaked!  
There were goggles galore, as Johanna and the kids were blowing things up, mixing them, and watching them refuse to mix! Check out her post on the blog for all the adventure!
