Our Parenting Place offers parenting classes and language and culture classes (currently we are offering Persian and Russian language). The founders, Gilda Moshir, who is Persian, and Kira Solomatova, who is Russian, are eager to share their culture with the larger community by way of teaching language classes and hopefully soon bringing other cultural classes to you.
Our celebration included ribbon cutting, carnival games such as ring toss, color wheel, face painting, cultural crafts, and the sharing of traditional foods potluck. We were joined by community members, friends of the founders and business donors who had given so generously to our raffle. Everyone was a winner at this event.
Our goodie bags were passports that introduced to the kids a fact or two about the Russian and Persian culture. Happy reading! All in all, it was a beautiful day and we were applauded for bringing two cultures together that have more in common than initially thought of.
Since we've opened doors, many folks have asked us to offer other extra-curricular classes. So far, we've had offerings of crocheting, sewing, wholesome cooking, French and Spanish and we are eager to hear YOUR ideas too. Visit our website and help us grow, answer our survey on classes you might be interested in signing up for, either for yourself or your children.

Thank you, Gilda Moshir and Kira Solomatova
