I first joined the Parent Resource Center a year ago, and in the past year the PRC has proved to be an essential resource for my growing family as we've acclimated to parenthood and to the Port Washington community. When I had my daughter Grace, I quickly learned that new parents need a robust support network and that babies need regular stimulation outside the house. The PRC has been a great place for us to find both.
We have met some great people and enjoyed a wide variety of classes over the past year. Nicole's "Mothers of Infants" class was a lifeline for me and a bunch of other new moms, where we shared our worries, frustrations, and joys every week. Linda's "Babycise" class was a wonderful class for celebrating and encouraging all of the amazing developmental milestones in Grace's first few months of life. Grace absolutely loved Jeff''s "Songs Say So Much" class, where she had fun dancing and shaking and watching puppet shows. Kelsey's "Green Arts" class was full of great ideas for toddlers to explore their creativity. And Janet kept all our "Little Movers" moving, and smiling, every week.
My daughter has grown and developed so much in the past year through PRC classes. And I've relied on the PRC to help with the day-to-day challenges of parenting, whether enjoying an occasional parent's night out, to taking advantage of drop-off day care to run an errand or two. We are fortunate to have such a wonderful resource in our community!
