We have music programs in the works. Stay tuned!
We're excited for you and your kids (ages 0-5) to join us for these upcoming events! We'll be including more about these partnerships in our blog and next "In A Nutshell" e-leaflet. In the meantime, please share this blog and corresponding social media posts with your friends! Also, in case you missed our social media post, in recognition of Suicide Prevention Month (September), Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 1-7), and World Mental Health Day (October 10) and in support of those we hold dear, we encourage you to join us in making a donation to NAMI Wisconsin. Playful Acorns will also be donating a portion of funds from all Pop-Up Play Cafe (Cross Plains and Verona) bookings made this month through October 10th to this nonprofit, whose mission is to improve the quality of life of those affected by mental illness and to promote recovery.
The world is a better place with you in it. Stay;
