Andrew McKnight, award-winning folksinger and storyteller, returns to Bristol and his family's roots for a fourth local concert. Artist Tree Tea House will host the event in the art space next to the tea house, Gallery 156 at 156 School Street, Bristol. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m.

Andrew's first Bristol concert over six years ago was at the Bristol Historical Society where he honored his grandmother, Bristol resident, Madeleine McKnight, by raising money for a scholarship in her name.

Currently, Andrew lives in Virginia with his wife and daughter but visits family and friends in Connecticut several times a year. His music is filled with stories of family, friendship and community. Several of his songs lament the changes that occur to neighborhoods with time. He also captures moments in time such as a farm family celebrating the first rain after a long drought.

Andrew has criss-crossed American singing and telling stories but his experiences have inspired him to write more music about this great country and its wonders and its people.

Tickets are $20 but no one will be turned away for inability to pay.

I Can Do It Myself: Fostering Independence and Self-Help Skills in Toddles and Preschoolers
Date: Monday, April 28, 2014 (Event Views: 727)

I Can Do It Myself: Fostering Independence and Self-Help Skills in Toddles and Preschoolers

Topic: Parenting

Date & Time:
Mon 04/28/2014 (6:00 PM-7:30 PM) - Open

Cost: $15

Toddler’s developing brains are “wired” for independence- “NO, mine, and I do it!!” are their favorite words. And when children enroll in preschool, they are expected to be able to do many things independently- which often proves to be a real challenge if they haven’t been learning self-help skills at home. This workshop will focus on the types of tasks that young children are developmentally ready to learn at each age; what kind of household chores are appropriate for young children (even two-year olds!), and ways to simplify teaching of personal care skills (like putting on shoes, getting dressed, washing, etc) to allow children to master them independently.

Monday, April 28, 6 - 7:30 pm
$15/parent or $17/childcare provider

To register, please call 860.585.3895

Location:
