Preschool and program options abound at annual faire
Submitted By FUN Mothers? Club
FUN (Fremont, Union City and Newark) Mothers? Club presents our 14th annual ?Preschool Faire? on Saturday, February 10. This Tri-City wide faire brings together over 20 preschools and extracurricular programs designed for young children under one roof. This is a unique opportunity to research what options are available to your child for preschool and beyond in the Tri-City area. This Preschool Faire is free and open to club members and the public, so bring your friends!
Schools and programs registered for the Preschool Faire so far include 4Cs of Alameda County, A Child?s Hideaway, American Swim Academy Fremont, Azevada/ Chinese immersion program, BASIS Independent Fremont, Bay Aerials Gymnastics, Challenger School, Early Start Music, Fremont Christian School, Fremont Parents? Nursery School, Fremont Unified School District Preschool Programs, Holy Spirit Preschool, Kimber Hills Academy, Kumon, Learning Kids Montessori, Little Lamb Ministry, Macaroni Kid, Montessori School of Centerville, Music for Minors II, New Horizons School, Our Savior Preschool, Pacific West Gymnastics, Scholarshare529, St. Joseph School, Stellar Academy for Dyslexics, Stratford School, The Marvegos Fine Art School, and YMCA of the East Bay.
February is Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) Awareness Month. CHDs affect roughly 1 in 100 babies and 25 percent of them will require surgery. It is the most frequently occurring birth defect, often to mothers with no high-risk factors. In fact, at least three current FUN Mothers? Club members have children born with CHDs. To create awareness of this cause, we will host a drive to create Bravery Bags through Mended Little Hearts for children undergoing open heart surgery at UCSF and Stanford. Providing these donations makes hospital stays more comfortable for the children and their families during this stressful time. One of our members has a baby who underwent open heart surgery in September 2016; she can vouch that care packages go a long way and are very appreciated.
Here are the items needed for Bravery Bags:
Plastic sandwich bags, small stuffed animals (beanie baby sized), eight count crayon packs, coloring books, sudoku/crossword puzzle books, blank journals, pocket-sized tissue packs, lip balm, travel-sized hand sanitizer, travel-sized toiletries, and hard candy.
