Doodle Bugs! Children's Centers knows the way to a kid's heart is through his sweet tooth, so it seems National Ice Cream Month is a terrific reason to get families together for a fun-filled event. On Tuesday, July 16, from 5 to 7 p.m., all Doodle Bugs! centers will host an old-fashioned ice cream social.
All are invited to sit at the counter of the Doodle Bugs! Old-fashioned ice cream parlor, have a delicious treat or a grilled hot dog on a warm summer evening, and enjoy fun games and activities. Doodle Bugs! faculty will be on hand to serve up a sundae or cone with all the favorite toppings.
"Summer is always filled with memories of warm, play-filled days and cool ice cream treats. Our old-fashioned ice cream social event will help make Doodle Bugs! a part of those memories, and we couldn't be more excited," said Anthony Insinna, president and CEO of Doodle Bugs! Children's Centers.
All are welcome to come and mingle with friends and family, meet the staff and tour the center. Guests will also have an opportunity to learn more about the upcoming fall programs and learn about enrollment options. Children can participate in arts and crafts, including decorating an old-fashioned soda hat, games, face painting and much more.
Doodle Bugs! Children's Centers provides education-based care for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years, including preschool/pre-K and summer camp programs. The "BRAVO!" curriculum, which is professionally designed and exclusive to Doodle Bugs!, combines theme-related, developmentally appropriate classroom experiences, all-inclusive enrichment activities and a series of center events. Enrichment activities include Tae Kwon Do and "Doodle Dance & Fitness."
Doodle Bugs! utilizes unique safety features, including the new "SafePass" system, which is a biometric access system allowing only authorized family members to enter the center by scanning their thumbprint. The center is also equipped with finger-safe door guards, an automated external defibrillator, and real-time, password-protected online viewing for families, via WatchMeGrow.com.
Doodle Bugs! Children's Centers is locally owned and operated, with six centers in Buffalo and four in Rochester. The 11th center recently opened in Pittsburgh, and a second franchised location is currently under construction in Greece. Insinna and his sisters, Clarine Insinna and Anna Insinna Zavatti, established the company in 1992 in East Amherst.
