I will have two spaces open this fall. I wanted to ask you to please pass this on to anyone in your circle of friends or neighbors, who might be interested in a full day program. I will be happy to email them information about my program and meet with them, if they think we might be a good match, after reading my material.

I appreciate you passing this on. Bj Richards/Bj;s Kids
