Dear Playgroup in the Park Parents & Alumni,

Can you believe it, Playgroup in the Park (PGiP) is now in it’s fifth year!  I still remember my first days in the classroom with my twin daughters over 3 years ago.  Truthfully, I really didn’t know what to expect and it took me a minute to understand the concept of “child directed”.    But as I played alongside my children, I watched them grow and develop in ways big and small.  It was then that I truly began to appreciate what a special place PGiP is for early learners.  I am sure each of you have special memories of your time in Playgroup as well.

We invite you to come back to Playgroup and share in the fun once again.  Please join us for PGiP’s 5th Birthday Party on Thursday, May 22, 2014 (details below).  Many of us made great friendships through PGiP, so this is a great opportunity to both celebrate PGiP’s success and reconnect with friends.  It is also a wonderful way to say “Thank You” to Laura Martin, founder of PGiP, and the rest of the PGiP family for all they have given our children.

Please consider joining us for the celebration.  We are planning a spectacular, adults only, fun-filled evening with good food, good drinks and great company.  Tickets are only $75 per person. Simply go to PGiP’s new website at to RSVP and pay online.  Funds raised above the cost of the event will be used to provide additional training for PGiP faculty in the Reggio Emilia approach.
