Thank you for loving us!

Dear Playhouse families and friends, As of last week, we were preparing to bring you good news about the Playhouse. We had an exciting new redesigned building plan, maintaining the playhouse and utilizing the other side of the building for science, math and creative brain development for 5-12 year olds.

The plan was developed by a nationally known museum expert. If you are interested in seeing it, stop by between 9-5, Mon-Fri this week. It would be a wonderful asset for Holland's children.



Unfortunately the investor feels he cannot continue so the Playhouse will have to close. June 19 will be our last day. Please join us during our final days - June 17,18,or 19. Every child receives a FREE book!

Other activities run by Life Services will continue, but we will miss the Playhouse and all of the parents, grandparents and beautiful little ones who have visited us!

A great list of read-aloud chapter books to read with your kids (and a few helpful things she's learned while reading chapter books to her kids):

"Don’t underestimate your child’s reading comprehension! There have been times when I’ve been reading and I think to myself that there is NO way my kids are catching on to this story..."

"Books that have a drawing every few pages are nice to keep them engaged (especially for my 4-year-old), but it isn’t necessary. Sometimes it’s fun to see their imaginations working without looking at pictures."
