Our next Bloomfield SEPAC Meeting is set for Wednesday, May 17, 2017, at The Early Childhood Center at Forest Glen School from 7 – 9 P.M.
Our special guest will be Dr. Ellen Platt, a renowned Child Psychiatrist who will speak about such topics as helping Parents to deal with Anxiety and School Avoidance with Pre-School through Elementary School Students. She will also hold a Question & Answer Session for our Parents
Dr. Platt held a very informative Forum for parents of our school Teens in January and she has graciously agreed to return to do the same for the parents of our younger age students at our May 17th Meeting.
The Early Childhood center at Forest Glen is located at 280 Davey Street, Bloomfield, N.J. Davey Street is off Belleville Avenue, in Bloomfield. After you turn onto Davey Street, just follow the winding road to the end and you will be in the School Parking Lot.
All are welcome. Please bring a friend and a question or two that you would like the Doctor to address.
