Menlo Children's Center celebrates Mother's Day

Posted on May 9, 2015 at 11:49 pm by Clay Curtin

The toddlers, early preschool, and morning birds classrooms at Menlo Children's Center hosted a “Muffins with Mommy” event Friday, May 8, 2015, in observance of Mother’s Day. Mothers, grandmothers and family friends joined the children for a breakfast of muffins, fruit, coffee and juice. Parents dropped their children off in the morning and stayed for a few minutes to socialize with the teachers and other classroom adults. The preschool classroom hosted the annual Mother’s Day brunch which began with a special story read by a retired Menlo Park librarian. Afterward, parents were treated to a homemade lunch cooked by staff. This is an event that mothers look forward to each year. All mothers in attendance were presented with handmade cards made by the children.
