Early Education Services: Teddy Bear Teas set for May

BRATTLEBORO — During the month of May, 15 Windham County elementary schools will open their doors to children 5 and younger, parents, caregivers, early educators, and their teddy bears.

Children are invited to bring their favorite teddy bears (other favorite stuffed animals are welcome of course) for a "Teddy Bear Tea." Adults, children, and bears will meet staff, listen to a story or two, visit with other families and do a craft. Special teddy bear cookies (made by RSVP Volunteers and Brattleboro Union High School students) and other snacks will be provided. These snacks are made possible through a donation from the Mary Meyer Corporation.

Teddy Bear Teas are designed to encourage an open and trusting partnership between home and school. They also are a chance for families to connect with their community. The Teddy Bear Teas are co-sponsored by Early Education Services and Windham County elementary schools.
