Spring 2015

Mommy and Me West is always welcoming fabulous new moms to join our organization! We are thrilled mommies with infants to children getting ready to start kindergarten. At MMW, warmer temperatures bring TONS of amazing activities, seasonal themed celebrations and other fun events all spring long. Our goal is to provide events and activities that help build friendships, encourage learning and enrich the lives of children. We regularly host MMW sponsored events and parties that are FREE to attend for Mommy and Me West members. If there is something you like to do every year that you think our group would like, please contact our wonderful calendar director at calendar@mommyandmewest.org and let her know!

Community & More

Mommy & Me West has always strived to be involved in our community. We are constantly looking for new places to explore, different avenues or ways for families to save money and also helping local businesses, like area preschools get their name out there. With events like our annual preschool expo, charity food drives, and local fundraisers, MMW has proven to be an integral part of the Las Vegas Community!

Secure Parenting, Inc. 
*FREE* Parent/Toddler (20-40 months) 
Education 8-week Class Series 

Are you exhausted from parenting your toddler? Based on the latest research in brain development, this groundbreaking program offers parents preventative practices to guide toddlers in their emotional development, providing a solid foundation for a child’s sense of worth. Parents learn how to strengthen the connection with their toddlers, which creates positive, measurable, lasting change in their lives.
 
Course highlights:
 • Build closeness and trust with your child, especially when s/he is feeling frustration, anger and/or disappointment 
• Learn and practice “kid-tested” communication choices that demonstrate empathy and understanding 
• Become more attuned to what your child is communicating so you can respond sensitively 
• Explore how childhood experiences of the parents shape the way we parent 
• Long-term benefits are seen in children from similar programs such as forming better relationships, higher self esteem, performing better on schoolwork, improved ability to control their tempers and health benefits 

The first *FREE* class series (8-weeks, 2 hours per week) begin April 2015 (The parent attends the first 90 mins in a Parent Ed group while the 2-3 year olds have certified caretakers in another room, and then toddlers join the Parent group the last 30 mins). 

Two classes:
Sunday mornings 10am-noon staring April 12 (near Pecos & Sunset) 
Monday afternoons 4-6pm starting April 13 (near Flamingo & Maryland)

Space is limited to 12 parents and 12 toddlers per class. This will be a pilot test of the new program, so parents will be asked to complete a number of questionnaires to receive the class for free
