Early Connections ~ Natural Learning and Open Education!

Open Connections announces the return of Early Connections, a program for parents and infants/toddlers (newborn to 3 years)!

A few of the issues this program will explore are: the role of parents as supporters of natural learning and open education; separating out our needs from our wants, and helping our youth do the same; identifying communication barriers and enhancers between parents & youth and setting boundaries that work.

The program is 6 weeks in length:
July 7th thru August 11, 2010.

$150 IF paid prior to June 1, 2010
$175 for payments received after June 1.
