    I hope the Feeding Wars class gets rescheduled soon as that is an area that I could use help in right now lol!

  2. Katie Says:

    Hi Amanda,

    It hasn’t been rescheduled yet, but we are offering a “Healthy Snacking” class at a couple of branches this spring. Stay tuned!

    Is there a new schedule for classes starting after February? If so when will it be published, or can I be emailed a copy?

  4. Katie Says:

    Hi Becky,

    Our Spring Kaleidoscope, which lists all of our ECE classes, will be available at our branches by the end of February. You can also search for upcoming ECE classes in the Events portion of our website.

    Thanks for inquiring!
