At Home and Private Classes
What a fun thing to do for parents night out! For those of you involved in playgroups or other small gatherings of parents, I have good news. If you are interested in hosting private workshops, and can gather a minimum of 5 other paying families, you can get your class for FREE in exchange for hosting the workshop. You can host a class at your home or maybe some place like a local church or community center. The host family needs to have access to a TV & DVD player where the guests will be able to view the TV comfortably. This workshop is for adults only.

About Jennifer Thompson...
If you live in New Lenox and go to the Kid's Department at the New Lenox Library you may know me as Ms. Jen. I am the Children's Program Coordinator at the library and love doing storytimes such as Pajamapalooza for ages 6 & up , Wiggle Worms/Movers & Shakers for the crawling/walker crowd, the Girls Rock Book Club for tweens, and Simply Silly Storytime for all ages. I introduced baby sign language to the Wiggle Worms programs in 2004, and had such a wonderful response from the babies and parents that I decided I wanted to share this gift with families outside the library walls. So here I am....
In my spare time, I am also a mom, massage therapist, a Certified Infant Massage Instructor, and a Baby Yoga Instructor as well. Check out my website listed below for more details.
I look forward to meeting you!
