Private Schools Closed, Oct. 20. Do You Have a Babysitter? You do With Tripster



Local area private schools (Boys Latin, Bryn Mawr, Friends, Garrison Forest, Gilman, RPCS and more)  are closed on Monday, October 20 for an Association of Independent Maryland Schools meeting.  What to do with the kids?  Don’t panic,  sign your children up for Tripster and send them on a visit to The Franklin Institute!

Tripster is the new program started by former lawyer and current mom Jamie Seward. She started her business because she recalls those stressful days when the kids had a day-off, but she did not.  Too old for a babysitter, too young to be left alone, the kids needed something to do and she would find herself in a jam. Now she’s doing for moms and dads what she would have liked done when she was working outside the home: organizing a field trip on the kids’ day-off.

Next week she’s taking a group to The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Your child will have a blast exploring all three floors of the institute’s hands-on, interactive science exhibits, watching an educational theater offering, and experiencing a Live Science show! Transportation, admission, lunch, and snacks are included! 

Visit the Tripster website, www.tripsteronline.com, and sign up for the adventure.

Don’t forget to use discount code SIBLING at check-out when you register more than one child.


October Open House at the Waldorf School – Ask About the Rudolf Steiner Scholarship


Waldorf Ad_BF 550-800

October Open House at the Waldorf School – Ask About the Rudolf Steiner Scholarship.  A visit to the Waldorf School of Baltimore is an important part of deciding whether a Waldorf education is right for your child. Initially, you will notice the beauty of our hallways and classrooms. What makes a more lasting impression, however, is the sense of purpose and joy you will observe as students move throughout the campus – as they arrive to begin the day, as they travel between classes, and as they depart in the afternoon.

At Calvert School Passionate Teachers are Instilling Curiosity in Students


Student Life

(from the Calvert School site)

Although a student’s day at Calvert School is full of purpose and concentration, it is also well balanced with opportunities for curiosity and exuberance. Part of our mission is to engage and ignite the inherent desire of all children to explore and understand the world around them.

Our teachers are passionate about enhancing our students’ education through fine arts, technology, extra-curricular activities, community outreach, and athletics. Most important, they transfer this passion to our children, which will lead them to become productive and responsible members of
their communities.

Calvert School prepares its graduates to embrace the challenges awaiting them with confidence, a love of learning, and a growing sense of themselves and their place in the world. We work to preserve the traditions that have been important to so many of our students through generations, but we also strive to inspire students to cultivate new interests and passions.
