    Chautauqua Coffee Hour is an opportunity for parents to get to know one another, learn and share parenting ideas, and get caffeinated! Most meetings will have a short parenting topic presented by the facilitator and parent educator, Christine Wood, as well as time for each person to check in and ask a parenting question if they choose to. Meetings are every Wednesday from 9:15-10:15 am in Room #330 (small district conference room).

    Christine Wood is the Program Manager and Parent Educator at the VYFS Family Place (formerly known as Playspace). She has made a nearly 20 year study of child development and the parenting practices that support children to reach their full potential. Christine is raising three teenage boys and finds parenting to be endlessly wonderful, amusing, and challenging.
