Toddler Play Time Is a time for children to learn to play with other children, and parents to meet individuals with similar interests. It is held Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 - 11:00. This is a very popular activity with newly arriving Families.
Children’s Crafts Twice weekly at the Toddler Play Time, we plan simple crafts for parent and child to complete together.
Holiday Celebrations We observe Holidays with special crafts, pictures and parties. These include Valentine Day, Easter egg hunt, Mother’s Day, Halloween party and the favorite Santa Party.
Information and Referral Outreach Services maintains information on many military and civilian service agencies. Information Pamphlets are available on ACS Programs.
Outreach Smiley Packets The Outreach Program has formed a partnership with Picerne Neighborhood Offices to provide Smiley Packets to newly arriving Families when they sign for housing. These same Smiley Packets are taken to Families living at both units of the Holliday Inn Express which is now the Temporary Lodging. Packets contain information on ACS Programs to include location and telephone numbers.
English–as-a-Second Language (ESL) Classes We provide multi-level ESL Classes for Soldiers and Family members. Each individual must make an appointment to register and take an entrance test. If a class is available you may start immediately. A Conversational Class was recently started and students in book level 3 and 4 may attend as well as anyone who has completed all levels.
Volunteers An important part of Outreach Services – We train volunteers to teach ESL, work with the Outreach Smiley packets, and to service as Sewing Instructors.
