Playscape Calendar & Events 2021

Welcome to Virtual Playscape!

A program of Mother Mentors Whidbey Island
Winter-Spring 2021 Schedule

Dear Mother Mentor Families,

We wanted to update families about our programs. In determining what we could safely offer, we gathered information from organizations we share space with, contacted the Parks Department about outdoor options, reviewed input from the family survey, talked with other Play and Learn groups and reviewed current state recommendations.

Although we had hoped to meet face to face, we have determined it is not yet safe for us to do so.  Even outdoor gatherings are not a viable option right now due to the size limitation of only ten people (adults and children).

We know how important it continues to be for caregivers and children to build community and find support with one another so instead of canceling all programs for the year, we put together an alternate plan until we can safely meet in person.

Caregivers let us know which parenting topics they are most interested in learning about.  Each month we will pick one topic to share articles, videos, pose questions or surveys so we can continue to learn and support one another.

We invite you to use our page to connect with one another, to ask for help, offer tips and suggestions. In addition to Mother Mentors Facebook group there are other local groups you may consider joining such as South Whidbey Moms and Dads, Moms of South Whidbey and on the north end, Whidbey Island Wives and Spouses. If there are other groups, please let us know so we can share those as well.

Instead of filling out the yearly form, we will be gathering information electronically. Thank you for taking the time to send that information back to us. If you know other families who may benefit from our program, please spread the word.

We are committed to continuing our work with families with young children. We are flexible and will look at changing our programs when it is safe to do so.
