CHOICES Chapter Early Childhood Chats

CHOICES Chapter Early Childhood Chats

Time: Saturday, March 6, 2021 07:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

At the MCGT CHOICES Chapter, we keep our eyes open for common themes among parents and opportunities to connect.

We’ve talked with several families recently who have little ones.  Some are looking for support with their older gifted kids and also have bitty ones on the way or at home, and some are trying to figure out what to do with their 3- and 4-year olds who might not fit (or already don’t fit) the preschools that work well for other kids in the neighborhood.

We’ve set up two virtual chats, open to any friend of the MCGT community with one on the way or a little one up to age 4, at different days and times.

Passcode: CHOICES

The chats will be casual, with no specific agenda.  Our goal is to connect with each other, perhaps say some things that could feel awkward at ECFE or preschool, swap tips, and explore what you might need from the MCGT community.  

Come to one or both, and drop in or out as you’re able.  You can lock yourself in the privacy of your car or bedroom, or sit in the living room with a babe in arms, a toddler needing a steady stream of Cheerios, or a preschooler popping in to make faces on the camera.  

After the chats, we’re happy to help facilitate further shenanigans.  We can discreetly exchange contact information, or we can support your execution of group opportunities for parents or littles.  It is our hope that you’ll together identify some great ideas to meet your needs.

RSVPs, to [email protected], are encouraged but not required, as it allows us to reach out to you with any changes.
