---- — SALEM — Salem Family Resources is accepting registrations for the winter/spring session of the Parenting and Play Group program.

This session will run from February to June. The program is affordable for all families, and openings are limited.

Parenting and Play Groups are moms, dads, family caregivers and their children who meet with a qualified group leader once a week for fun, age-appropriate learning activities, parent support and discussions about raising children.

Join a morning group, 9:30 to 11 a.m. or from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Wednesday for stories, songs, snacks, early learning activities and fun for all.

Salem Family Resources-Success By 6, in collaboration with the Salem School District, will host a “Ready, Set, Go!” school readiness workshop on Monday, Feb. 18, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at 171 Zion Hill Road in the Triumphant Cross Lutheran Church community center.

Representatives from the Salem School District will present information on “Fostering Positive Behavior” for parents of young children, ages birth to 5.

The “Ready, Set, Go!” workshop series offers fun and easy tips on early learning at home that help children prepare for success when they enter school. Parents are their children’s first teachers, and experiences during the early years from birth to 5 build a strong foundation for lifelong learning.

There is no cost to attend this workshop. Children are welcome. Childcare with fun activities will be available.
