What do you want to talk about?

Round Table Discussion Ideas: What topics do you want to talk about with the Fun Van educators?

We are planning a live discussion forum on Facebook coming up on May 29th to be posted here once it is complete. We are hoping to answer the questions that you have on your minds, and talk about the things that matter to you. Take a moment and answer our poll so we can get an idea of what you want to talk about.

What topics do you have questions about for our upcoming round table discussion?

Do you have other ideas?

Don’t see a topic you are interested in? Shoot us a quick message or tell us in the comments! Fun Van has been working hard to stay in touch with you, our community. We want to help as much as we can in these uncertain times. This means we are open to ideas on how we can help you, what types of resources you are looking for and more. Being a parent/caregiver is hard enough on a normal day, we appreciate all you are doing with your families. What can we do to help you and your family?
