Coffee and Kids


What is Coffee & Kids?

It’s a once monthly, parent led discussion group where parents can discuss concerns, share stories and ask questions centered around their children.  Retired educators Ann Asbeck, Mari Lynn Garbowicz, and Beth Jacobson are able to provide guidance based on proven research and years of experience. They will share what is developmentally appropriate and relevant to today’s learner. Coffee and Kids provides a relaxed atmosphere for give and take discussions.

Coffee and Kids welcomes discussion topics from you. Click on the “I’m Interested” button to the right. Use the Google Form to submit questions, concerns, and topic ideas you have related to your child(ren).

Plans are underway for Coffee and Kids 2022/2023!!!!

Ann, Mari Lynn, and Beth are excited for a new year of Coffee and Kids.  We are continuing our partnership with the Demmer Story Hour, Candice, and April.  We look forward to helping parents in our community get answers to their questions about a variety of topics related to children, their development, and their learning.

Two of us will be out of town for much of September, so the first Coffee and Kids will be Tuesday, October 11, 2022.  Discussions will be held in the Tamarack Room at the Demmer at 10:00 a.m.

We will continue to provide parents information via the Demmer Library newsletter, The Library Page.   Check out the developmental milestones for 3-year olds in this issue! (we encourage you to visit past articles as well, which are available on the Demmer website)
