The "New Normal"  can be felt throughout all of our programs.  In our Family Programming we have taken our wonderful Indoor Family Playgroups and crafted them to work for the times by offering them outside. We have also developed video "Story Time" and "Check It Out" parent tip videos all found on our YouTube channel.
