Parent's Night Out - The Harbor
October 27th, 2017
The Harbor of FBC invites parents of children with special needs to Parents' Night Out. This is a time for you to enjoy a hassle-free, cost-free night out on us! We will have child care for special needs children as well as siblings of any special needs children who are 12 or under. We understand how important (and how difficult) it is to enjoy a moment away when you are caring for a special needs child and want to serve our you in this way!
A few things to note: - We ask that parents pack a brown bag dinner for all children. - Snacks will be provided. Please make sure to list any dietary needs. - We will divide the children who come into age appropriate and ability appropriate groups to make sure they receive the care and attention they need. - We will have trained volunteers to care for your children as well as several adults who work with the special needs population vocationally.

MOPS: Mother’s of Preschoolers Changing the world is as simple as one Mom at a time influencing her own young child. MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) exists to give moms who have a preschool child a place to connect with other moms, to gain support in their roles, to learn some valuable “Mom-skills,” and to strengthen their faith.
