The Mountain Communities Family Resource Center’s Mommy & Me group is inviting families with children 0-5 to join us for a field trip to the California Living Museum (CALM) in Bakersfield on Wednesday, March 26.
Mommy & Me will pay for one parent or caregiver and all children 0-5 years old for up to 30 families. We will meet at CALM at 10 a.m. Please carpool if possible. Bring lunch and snacks for yourself and your children.
The Mommy & Me group meets weekly, starting April 2. The group provides parents with social opportunities to meet other parents in the Mountain Communities, while offering fun, child development and stimulating activities that everyone can enjoy. The group is sponsored by First Five and funded by Proposition 10. If you have any questions, or would like to know about upcoming events, please contact Amy Crippen at 661.245.4303.
