    Each summer school session varies from 2 to 5 days in length. Class begins at 9am and ends at 12 noon. The class day will include a variation of choice time, art projects, music, story time, snack and outside play time.  More info here

  • Positive Discipline Classes by Bob Bradbury


    We are pleased to announce Bob Bradbury will return to teach Positive Discipline this winter.

    Bob teaches this course founded on Adlerian Psychology. Alfred Adler had an optimistic concept of human nature, believing that mutually respectful relationships are essential for individual and community well-being, and that the skills and attitudes for such relationships are teachable and learnable.

    Bob's class is based on Sanity Circus (of which Bob was the first presenter), which is geared toward parents who want more respectful, cooperative, and more joyful relationships with their children. The class topics include parenting styles, the goals of misbehavior, encouragement, communication, family meetings, and the difference between discipline and punishment. For more info, see

    Bob is a delightful man and has guided our parents throughout the years in a supportive and non-judgmental environment. We are lucky to have him back for this content packed six-week course! We hope you will join us.

    WHEN: Wednesday evenings 7-8pm (Class) and 8-8:30pm (Consulting) on Feb 22, 29, and March 7, 14, 21, 28

    WHERE: Rainy Day room

    COST: $25 for the series (yes, all six classes for a total of $25!)

    HOW: A sign-up sheet will be posted in the hallway near the Rainy Day room. Please sign up soon.
