Memorable Holiday Activities Mark Parents Night Out and Winter Break Programs

January 2nd, 2020

On Friday, December 13th, The Arc of Essex County hosted a Winter Wonderland themed Parents Night Out program giving attendees an entertaining evening while parents took some time for themselves.  Participants enjoyed decorating their own holiday ornaments while listening to their favorite, festive tunes.

Then, between Christmas and New Year’s, The Arc hosted its annual Winter Break Child Care program.  Taking place at the Stepping Stones School in Roseland, attendees enjoyed fun filled themed days including arts and crafts, games, movies, and more.  Attendees particularly enjoyed crafting their own sensory water bottles out of food coloring, oil, water, and glitter.

Don’t miss out! The Arc’s Parents’ Night Out program returns with a Valentine’s Day theme on Friday, February 7th.  Hosted by the Children and Family Services department, this program welcomes children with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their siblings ages 5-21 for an evening of fun while mom and dad take time for themselves.
