First Presbyterian Preschool in Savannah offers a nurturing, challenging Pre-K (Savannah pre-K programs)

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Searching for a nurturing and challenging Pre-K for your child for 2011-12? Stop by to visit First Presbyterian Preschool’s private Pre-K half-day program at 520 Washington Ave. in Ardsley Park.

The Pre-K is open to the community and offers families an educational, warm Christian environment. The school day is from 9 AM-noon. For interested families, an optional Lunch Bunch is offered three days a week from noon-2 PM. Other optional enrichment classes offered after school for an additional charge include: Spanish, soccer, Jump Bunch and art.

Visitors are welcome to visit the school classrooms, meet the teachers and ask questions. Call Ann Anderson, First Presbyterian Preschool Director at 912-351-0609.

In addition to Pre-K, First Presbyterian Preschool also offers a morning program that includes a class for 1-year-olds (walking); a class for 2-year-olds; and a class for 3-year-olds. The school follows the Savannah Chatham School calendar, beginning the day after Labor Day and ending on the last Friday in May. During summer, two three-week “camp” sessions are offered.

Teachers approach learning “developmentally”, offering age-appropriate activities to meet each child’s developmental needs. The school’s comfortable, welcoming environment allows children to gain socialization skills as they work in a combination of large and small manipulatives and participate in Circle Time, a daily story, art, music and outdoor play. First Presbyterian’s associate pastor shares a Bible story weekly.

The First Presbyterian Preschool program boasts a dedicated staff of qualified teachers. Class size is limited to eight. The “Ones” and “Twos” have two teachers each, while the “Threes” and “Pre-K” have one teacher each. Director Ann Anderson is a veteran Early Childhood educator and floats among the four classrooms. Instructors are CPR certified and trained in First Aid.

On a personal note, as a First Presbyterian Preschool parent, I couldn’t be happier with the school, the engaging and energetic teachers and the director Ann Anderson, who greets families at the door each school morning, making children feel welcome and excited about the school day ahead.  The staff, the parents and the children all enjoy being at First Presbyterian Preschool, the true sign of a quality school.

Help available in Savannah and surrounding areas for moms with postpartum depression

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Are you pregnant or new mother?

Are you feeling alone, sad, overwhelmed or angry?

The Mary Telfair Women’s Hospital at St. Joseph’s/Candler and Mental Health America bring you a free line to help you deal with those feelings. Left untreated, postpartum depression can become debilitating.

Contact the Confidential Project Healthy Moms Warmline at 1-800-933-9896 ext. 234 or PHMhelp@mhageorgia.org  .

When you call or email the Project Healthy Moms Warmline, please leave a message, and an experienced registered nurse will respond as soon as possible. She will be able to provide peer support and encouragement and to suggest appropriate resources.

Read my article about local moms dealing with postpartum depression here. A big thank you to the moms who were generous enough to share their experiences with PPD.

What is postpartum depression and anxiety?

• Irrational, intrusive thoughts that seem like they are set on repeat. You may ask, ‘Why did I have that thought?’
• Anxiety is prevalent, including worries or obsession about the baby’s health
• Feeling all the time that you are doing everything wrong
• Depression, characterized by intense sadness, anxiety or despair.
• Tearfulness, insomnia, fatigue, appetite disturbance

The line is not for emergencies. It is considered a postpartum emergency if you are afraid you are going to hurt yourself or your child.

What can you expect when you call?
• The first call you will leave a message and Joanne will get back to you within 24 – 48 hours.
• A mother who has been through postpartum depression and anxiety and survived.
• To begin to understand that you are not alone and that there is help.
• Honest support about the good and the bad parts of being a parent.
• Joanne will have a resource list of local counselors should you want one.

Glass Is Always Greener: Drink From An Ecofriendly BottlesUp Glass Water Bottle

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

On this Earth Day 2011, SouthernMamas.com is raising our reusable, eco-friendly glass BottlesUp water bottle in a toast to Kim Smith Rowe!

Kim won this week’s SouthernMamas.com giveaway:   a BottlesUp glass water bottle with the lowest carbon footprint in the industry. Cheers Kim!

Thanks to everyone who entered to win by sharing your Earth Day resolutions on the BottlesUp Facebook page .

What better time than Earth Day to ditch your landfill-bound plastic bottle and opt for a sustainable, recycled BottlesUp? Bluffton-based Bottles Up founder and a nationally-acclaimed glass artist Laurel Herter kindly mailed SouthernMamas.com our own BottlesUp for review and we love it. 

The sleek 22-ounce vessel is made with recycled glass and the snap-on cap is from food grade silicone – all sourced and made in North America. You have a choice of four different colors of caps and matching silicone grip rings. We especially appreciate the retro milk bottle lip.

Not only does the glass bottle help you in your goal to stop being environmentally reckless, it also will help you save money by refilling at the tap.  

But our favorite aspect of BottlesUp? Glass means that outside materials such as BPA won’t creep into our water. Now that’s something to toast to on Earth Day. Cheers!

$33.95 at www.bottlesupglass.com  or in specialty retailers. Learn more at www.glassisback.com . Glass is back.

Deadline to enter is noon Fri. April 22. We’ll announce the winner here that Friday. You have to be a SouthernMamas Weekly E-letter subscriber to enter to win. Subscribing is free. Click here to subscribe.

BottlesUp glass water bottles and packaging are 100% sourced in North America.

The colorful food-grade silicone grippers and cap are made in Maine. They use minimal packaging that makes the most of recycled materials. You’ll find zero plastic in the product or the packaging – zero, zilch, nada.

The glass water bottle is designed for the modern hand with a slight curviture and rings to be an easy, natural fit. Also, it has a rounded lip, like old-fashioned milk bottles, making it easy to drink from. So, bottles up and enjoy!
