The Social Detective Squad (Middle School Ages) 
June 27-July 1 from 11:30pm-1:00pm

Help Us Help Young People With Job Training!

Kid's Creek recently partnered with Kroger to develop an in-house training program for young people with special needs to learn job skills that will enable them to work in Kroger stores. Kid's Creek is holding a supply drive for items needed.

Please consider donating needed items such as canned foods, hygiene products, boxed items such as cake mixes, snack foods, noodles, etc. Expired food items are welcome, as they will only be used for training on sorting and stacking and will not be consumed.

Spring Break is
approaching fast! 

Please let Amanda in our front office know if you are planning to be out of town or need to reschedule any of your appointments.

Forward to your friends!

Please forward this email to your friends to let them know about Kid's Creek and the upcoming events we have scheduled. We always have room for more children in the Kid's Creek family!
WE LOVE REFERRALS!

Do you know a child who needs our help? Let their parents know that we offer FREE CONSULTATIONS and SCREENINGS. Many people are looking for a speech, occupational, or physical therapist for their child, and want to find a place that not only produces results, but values both the child and his/her family.
 
To refer a friend, have them mention your name and we'll take care of the rest. Plus, you will receive a Starbucks gift card for our refer-a-friend award program!
