Kamalama Parenting is a Hawaiian values-based parenting curriculum rooted in the understanding that parents are their children’s first teachers. Participants will realize how much of their own values and belief systems contribute to their style of parenting. Each class incorporates a Hawaiian value and positive parenting principles. Lessons include stories, activities, and a talk story time. The class instructor will be Bridgette Orsatelli from Child & Family Service, who is trained in several parenting programs.
In order to keep the group interactive, registration is limited to 12 families. If you are able to commit to attending all or most of the sessions, please sign up at the library. Light refreshments will be served.
Program schedule is subject to change. Contact the hosting library 15 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.
Families with children ages birth to five years are invited to read, sing, and play at the library!
For our Early Learning Storytime (12/14), the librarian will present stories and fingerplays during the first 20 minutes, and the rest of the hour will be for open play with select educational toys OR a simple process art activity or book-inspired craft.
For our Early Learning Playgroup (12/21 & 12/28), families are welcome to meet with friends and play with educational toys and equipment.
All young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.
