Connecting and Educating Your Child
There are so many resources out there for new families to explore, but sometimes it becomes overwhelming! As a new mom myself, and a teacher on the Cape, I often find I need to go out and search for ways to connect with my community and provide educational experiences for my child. There are so many things our community has to offer. The Coalition for Children, an Upper Cape grant funded education and support network, provides families with an abundance of resources available in the community. Their services are free and just a call away (508)548-0151 ext: 172 or 128. Their website provides an extensive list of play and learn groups active in the community, as well as workshops for parents to support their knowledge-base in the latest educational topics. I must say I have worked closely with many of the ladies that work in the organization, as well as presented at their big conference held annually. They are worth connecting with. Carolyn Minervino and Tina Toran are both co-coordinators and I cannot say enough good things about both of them. They are also a great resource for preschool-aged children and finding a perfect placement for them. Awesome Ladies!
Tina also creates these super awesome recyclable bags called WAVYO...check them out! I love women who multi-work :)

Thanks for sharing info about the Coalition Saramae! I actually didn't even know of them until this past weekend when by chance I met Tina Toran at my yard sale! Such a fabulous group!
