Welcome, children and families! St. George's is committed to warmly engaging with youngest and the oldest among us. Our Great Hall is equipped with a beautiful classroom and nursery with lots of toys, diapers and spare clothes. Currently available for parents to use with their children, however, we are eager to staff the room for drop-off during our Sunday masses. We also sponsor a number of free playdates and community events in conjunction with the Schenectady Moms Group https://www.meetup.com/Schenectady-Moms-Meetup/. Some recent activities include the a Thanksgiving outreach on November 17th; Advent-making wreaths on November 27th; craft projects; the Stockade Christmas Tree Lighting on December 4th followed by a reception; a preschool Christmas Party on December 21st; a Christmas Eve Pageant on December 24th; and a New Year's Eve Party "countdown" on December 31st; Valentine's Tea on February 19, and St. Patricks Day Party on March 17.
On Saturday, April 15, the children of St. George's and the surrounding community enjoyed an Easter egg hunt and party. There were 28 in attendance, 300 eggs to find outside, as well as fun crafts, snacks, and free play inside. All of the snacks and art supplies were donated, with St George's providing only some craft supplies that were already in stock. Most families stayed for the party, making connections and talking for at least an hour. The kids and adults all had a great time! Please be on the lookout for future kids' events and consider how you can be involved!
