MTC Programs and Events Fall 2016 & Beyond - Save These Dates!

Another great year of MTC education and social programming is in the works!

With generous support from Premier Sponsors Fertility IQ and Explore Discover Early Learning Centers, we encourage you to SAVE these DATES as we will have more education and social programs than ever before! If you aren't a member, now is a great time to join - our programs are open to members only!

If there is a program topic that you'd like us to cover, or if you know of a fun, central location for a social program/event, do let us know!

More details coming soon, but get ready - SAVE these dates now!

Be sure that your BigTent profile has your best email so that you will receive event invitations and can RSVP as soon as possible. Many programs will fill within a few days of being announced. (Announcements are typically sent via member email blast about 6 - 7 weeks before the program date.)

As always, education programs are for members only, and free; social programs are also for members only, but typically require that participants pay a fee (for food, drink, goods, etc.) toward the event.

Typically education programs are held on the third Monday of each month, from 6:30 - 8:30P but can vary to coordinate with holidays and special program opportunities. Social program dates/times vary.

If you missed past programs, check the Member Files section for handouts, reference materials and links provided by the speakers. Last year's programs included:

- Ages & Stages: Development infancy to 5 - what's 'typical''? 
- Put Mr. Potato Head (tm) to Work: play to support child development
- The Sleep Lady, practical solutions to supporting sleep for the whole family
