A Summer of Shakespeare

April 20, 2015

Marin Shakespeare CampMarin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Marin Shakespeare Company, which offers fun Shakespeare summer camps for kids of all ages in Marin.

“I love that this summer camp is more than just fun & games. I wanted a camp where my kids would have fun AND learn something. At Marin Shakespeare summer camp, they learned about Shakespeare & developed an interest in classic literature.  It was great for them to have gentle encouragement to get on stage & perform for a small audience.  Each teacher we had was different, but each one had an extremely creative way to engage the kids. Highly recommended.”

—Nicki, Parent of two Marin Shakespeare campers

November 3, 2014

Lycée Français de San FranciscoMarin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Lycée Français de San Francisco, which offers preschool and K–8 education at its Marin County campus in Sausalito. To learn more, visit the school online at lelycee.org.

The beginning of this school year marked a milestone for the Lycée Français de San Francisco’s campus in the Ebbtide neighborhood of Sausalito. The French immersion primary school started classes in in the fall of 2013, but the will and generosity of its parent community, along with the collaboration of Sausalito City Council, culminated this past September in the final touches on a playground that can be shared by children throughout Southern Marin.

The days are starting to edge towards a Bay Area winter, but the sun still shines brightly off the yellows and greens of the school’s play structure. LFSF boasts a strong community of families, and their dedication to their school and its new location brought this private and public space to fruition. The pride and personal investment of parents and classes is displayed on the colorful tile wall that runs along the playground’s northwest side.
