Parent Night Out
If you are young mom, between the ages of 15-23, we would love to invite you to join us for our “Parent Night Out”.
Why should you join us? Do you ever feel as though your world has tipped upside down? Or, that you are alone in facing all the changes and emotions that come with having a baby? Being a part of Parenteen gives you an opportunity to not walk the journey of parenting alone. It is a safe place to ask questions, to share dreams, to speak your goals and have an encouraging team cheering you on each step of the way. Having a baby may have changed the trajectory of your life but it doesn’t need to stop it!
After check-in, we eat dinner together, share high/lows of our weeks and simply enjoy being in each other space.
After dinner, children (3 months and older) are taken to either our nursery or toddler room to enjoy being snuggled, read to and to enjoy play time.
While they enjoy their play time, you will get to enjoy different activities, educations opportunities and fun break-out sessions. You will also have the opportunities to meet other young parents walking similar circumstances.
During ParenTeen group nights you will find lots of laughter, a safe place to be real, chocolates and simply a place to stop and breathe.
Thanksgiving Dinner – We enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner together and share ways we are grateful and thankful.
Christmas Store and Christmas Jammies – Young Moms will use their banked Parenteen Dollars as well as personal money to purchase new toys/jammies/books at 25% of retail price! Come shop, wrap and eat amazing food!
Christmas Celebration – We will be celebrating Christmas big by joining Single Parent Provision for their amazing Christmas Dinner and night to remember! See below for the date and join us for our Parent Night Out for more info and to register.
Easter Eggstraveganza – Invite your parents, siblings, grandparents, baby dads, boyfriends etc to join us for an awesome night of great food and an Easter Egg hunt that consists of more than 500 eggs being hid!
