Art, yoga, music, and more this month at the Nonnie Hood PRC


A look at what's coming up this November at the PRC. 

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and with it -- hopefully -- some colder weather. If you're a family who has never played at the Nonnie Hood Parent Resource Center, now is the perfect time to stop by for open play, or to check out some of the special events we have going on every week. Or, if you know a family that could use a warm, friendly place to play when the leaves turn and the thermometer drops below 40, let them know their first visit for open play is free!

This month, our focus is on giving families one last chance to recharge their battieries before the Holidays really get going. Whether it's Family Yoga, a messy art class, cooking together, or drop-off childcare, there is plenty for stir crazy families looking to get out and do something fun without freezing their noses off!

Here's a look at what we have coming up, and be sure to check the calendar for more details

Every Tuesday stop by after story hour at the Southeast Stueben County Library for some related crafts and activities! 

On Thursday, November 2, Nithya will be back for another cooking lesson. This time she'll be showing us a dish called 'dabeli' -- a type of hearty, vegetarian sloppy joe!

Kids Night Ins this month are Friday, November 3 and Friday, November 17. If you've already been to one, you know the drill -- three hours of fun, crafts, a bounce house, pizza, and snacks with our incredible staff! If you're a first-timer looking for a Friday night to yourself, give us a call with questions or to sign up today!

Miss Julie will be back for another Micro Angelos on Wednesday, November 8. She'll be showing us how to make paper lanterns, complete with battery-operated faux candles and personal designs!

The Science & Discovery Center will be here for two more Wednesdays this month, November 1 and November 15. The classes will be on counting and animals in water, respectively. While these are geared for ages two and up, anyone is allowed to join the sensory learning fun. 

If you're looking for some downtime during the day, our Me Time this month will be on Thursday, November 9. Similar to Kids Night In, Me Time allows for parents to drop their children off with our staff for crafts, fun, and activities. Me Time is perfect for parents with younger children not yet in school who need some time to run errands, or just have some well-deserved alone time!

Family Yoga with Elizabeth Moses.

Just in time for that pre-Thanksgiving stress, Elizabeth Moses will be here for another Family Yoga class on Friday, November 17. These are always well attended and we find that kids of all ages are loving them every time they come! 

And finally, on the last day of the month, Thursday, November 30, Music Therapist Jennifer Carlson will join us for another wonderful session of Music Development. These spots fill up incredibly fast, so if you want to get one you should call us at 607-936-3837 ASAP. 

Please also note that the PRC will be CLOSED from Wednesday, November 22 through Friday, November 24 so the staff can enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with their families. Additionally, the PRC will be CLOSED on Saturday, November 11 in observance of Veteran's Day.
