Champion for Children 2019

Friday, September 6th was a great night at Cliffrose Garden Center and Nursery. We celebrated those in our community who helped make Body Safety Awareness Education in our schools possible! 12 Hours of Mesa Verde also gave out $66,000 in grants to child-serving organizations in our community. 

We also had the M-CHS Panther Chefs cater the event! If you are looking for caterers, get in touch with the high school. These students were so professional and the food was great!

Instagram Tips for Parents and Guardians

I am a parent of a 15-year old who REALLY enjoys Instagram. What are some of the things I (and other parents and guardians) should be on the look out for? The more we know about the technology the children in our lives are using, the more we can help protect them while still giving them some freedom.

9 Tips for Device Safety

Children are using smart devices from a much younger age than ever before. Therefore it is essential we talk to our children about how to use them safely. There are many positive benefits to the new technology at our disposal these days – but there are plenty of downsides too. As a parent or carer, it’s important you understand these risks and how you can take steps to protect your family against them.
