We hope to see you at the Brooklyn Kite Festival on Saturday, September 13th, 11 am to 3 pm, Pier 1, Brooklyn Bridge Park....
The first day of school is coming up in the next few weeks. With that comes first Day of School jitters. Your child may be nervous. You may be nervous. Big Changes are afoot and they can be scary.
Here's a new song called "Forever Friends" from the Bright Sides about starting school.
Join your friends and neighbors at Park Slope Night at the Brooklyn Cyclones game on Sunday, August 24th.
The Cyclones take on the Tri-City ValleyCats at 5 PM at MCU Park on Coney Island. Take advantage of the special Park Slope Package. For just $16 you get a field box seat and a Free Cyclones souvenir cap ($18 value).
BEST of ALL -- a portion of the proceeds benefit the Old Stone House and Washington Park located right here in our Neighborhood. It’s also family FUN DAY at the Ballpark so come early and bring your gloves and a ball for a pre-game catch on the field at 4pm and stay late as kid’s get to run the bases after the game.
For seats visit brooklyncyclones.com or click HERE.
Please use passcode: PARKSLOPE when ordering.
See you there!
Summer's end means changing childcare needs for many of us, whether hiring a nanny or moving on from a current nanny is on the horizon. Whatever your situation, we have tons of information to guide you as you make the best choices for your family.
Hiring a Nanny?
The 2014 Park Slope Parents Guide to Hiring a Nanny [Beta] is a combination of best-practices, insights and honest expressions culled from years of experience by a diverse group of parents who have all been where you are now. It includes:

Does Your Nanny Need a Job?
Be sure to review our "Helping Your Nanny Find A Job" info on the PSP Website.
Need to post about your nanny? Please see the updated PSP requirements including our required template for nanny recommendations! We have a dedicated nanny moderator so it can take 24-36 hours for your message to post.
Saying "Goodbye" to your nanny? See our tips to help with the transitions including severance pay, goodbye partings, and more.
We have a section for nannies! Send your caregiver the PSP "Information For Nannies" guide with tips and advice to help them secure their next job.
Creating a Nanny Share?
We have updated The PSP Guide to a Successful Nanny Share to include tips from what works (and what doesn't) to salary information, scheduling advice and more.
In the meantime, happy summer and best of luck.
See you around the Slope.

LET’S RAISE SOME MONEY!
Last week’s discussion about lack of access to bathrooms at JJ Byrne Playground made it clear that we need more staffing at Washington Park. The first step in this process is hiring a seasonal worker—at a cost of approximately $17,500. Below is a link so you can help make that happen.
If we can raise $50K in a month surely we can raise $18K. Been in the park in the past year? Please consider making a donation to the park. If everyone gives $10 then we’ll quickly have enough money to make sure that the bathrooms are staffed and peeing outside the stalls is a thing of the past! Washington Park is one of Park Slope’s best outdoor areas. It’s a great place for people of all ages.
Below is this week’s programming on the turf and in the tent:
