Holiday Parents Day Out will be held on Saturdays: December 3, 10, and 17. from noon until 5 p.m. at the Elkton Municipal Building second floor activity room. If you need a little longer to finish up, they also have Parents Night Out from 5-10 p.m. You may enroll your child in both sessions.
In order to participate, children must be 3-12 years old and toilet trained. There will be games, crafts, meals, snacks, and movies.
