Parenthesis Family Center would like to express our deep appreciation to all the individuals, local businesses, and sponsors that helped make our 27th Annual Kitchen Walk a huge success. We are especially grateful to the 10 homeowners who opened up their kitchens to over 700 visitors on a very busy spring weekend. This event could not happen without the 70 volunteers who worked as house coordinators and hosts.
One of the biggest purchase decisions a family with young children makes is choosing childcare and preschool. We are lucky in Oak Park to have an annual event hosted by Parenthesis that lets us look at many childcare centers all at once. On Thursday January 12, 2012 from 7pm-8:30 Parenthesis is hosting this year's annual preschool fair.
January marks not only the start of the new year, but for many parents the beginning of their search for a preschool or daycare program that will best fit the needs of their child. To help parents in this process, Parenthesis Family Center will hold its annual Preschool Fair on Thursday, Jan. 12.

A local, nonprofit organization that helps area families by providing parenting education and support programs to parents with young children is helping us to clean out our children's closets the easy and eco-friendly way. Find out how!
