Open House This Saturday: It Takes a Village

I meant to get this posted earlier, but things have been moving a little more slowly since the hurricane. Anyway, some local parents have created It Takes a Village, an innovative new model for community child-rearing, and they're having an open house this Saturday for those interested in learning more about it:

It Takes A Village!
721 Franklin Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11238

It Takes A Village! is a fun, safe, and social non-profit community space for local families with children under the age of 4. "The Village" is a funhouse for kids and a clubhouse for parents -- a home-away-from-home where new families find friends, reassurance, and a creative environment. Children here learn by engaging socially: an inspiring second home for exploration and diverse friend-making. The Village is a continually evolving open space to nurture our growing community of new families.

Members get a key to the front door, and unlimited access to a space, which will be furnished with books, toys, and wonderful outdoor playground. We also will have a wide array of classes: from yoga to music to lactation workshops etc. Above all The Village will be a place to go and hang out and be with other families and their children 7 days a week.

Membership will cover the cost of the rent and insurance, it will be a monthly number somewhere around $40.
