Is It Spring Yet?
There may have been conflicting results on Groundhog Day, but we're liking Holtsville Hal's prediction for an early Spring! With that in mind, this issue covers upcoming spring activities, winter break things to do, and more. We're waiting for you, Spring!
Sensory Fun
Did you know Long Island has several sensory play places and experiences for children? From Bridgehampton to Garden City, take a look at this list for some great ideas!
Science, Art, Sports and More!
Presidents' Week is coming! Are you prepared? It's a fun time of year to spend some down time with our children, and we're sharing this list of activities.
Get Ready For the Olympics!
The Olympics begin Friday evening, with 2 weeks full of skating, skiing, hockey and...curling! What a perfect way to enjoy some evening family time; to be sure you don't miss anything, take a look at this schedule of events.
Attend a free workshop!
Be sure to regularly check our Event Calendar! MKSA offers free provider workshops and free parent workshops. These give our providers opportunities to stay current on issues while maintaining their professional development hours. And we are looking to connect in more ways with families--whether in our program or not--and provide information and strategies on typical childhood topics. We hope to see you soon!
