Make the Right Choice with Greensboro Day School

As parents, we are constantly making decisions for our children. Is organic produce the best for my son? Will this booster seat keep my daughter safe? One of the most important decisions we will make is determining the best education for our children. We are fortunate to have a wide variety of schools in our area: public schools, magnet programs, charter schools, and independent schools, but deciding which one is right for your child may feel overwhelming. To help make your decision easier, Greensboro Day School has developed a checklist, titled “26 Question to Evaluate Your Choice in Schools” that covers questions to ask when on school tours about technology, student teacher ratio, differentiated learning methods, athletics, safety, and much more. To receive a copy and to learn more about Greensboro Day School, plan to attend the All School Open House on January 15, or Be a Bengal for a Day on January 23. For more information, please call 288-8590 or visit their website.

Kid’s Morning Out

Join Forsyth Family magazine for their next Kids Morning Out on Wednesday, January 14 from 10 am to Noon at Fulton Family YMCA, 385 W. Hanes Mill Road in Winston-Salem. Activity stations, free play, Bounce House, arts and crafts, games and facility tours available.

Updated Kids Eat Free Directory

Please click HERE to see our updated Kids Eat Free directory. We know so many of you use this directory regularly and we appreciate you emailing us when you notice a restaurant has changed their “Kids Eat Free & Almost Free” options. In addition to Kids Eat Free changes, if you know of a restaurant with a special deal for kids that’s not listed, please or leave a comment, and we’ll get it added.  We have included the date that the listing was confirmed by a restaurant employee, but as always, it’s smart to call ahead first to confirm a restaurant is still honoring the deal listed below. Happy dining out!
