Upstage Productions will be back at BISS this Summer for another week of Musical Theatre fun! The course will run from July 27th to July 31st and is suitable for 7 to 14 year olds.
The week will be as fun as last year ending with another great show.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, strict attention will be placed on remaining safe and respectful to other people's space. The audience will be respectfully positioned. Numbers onto the course will be limited and so booking a place soon is encouraged. Packed-lunches will be required and breaks will be spent outside.
Hand sanitizers will be provided and the rooms designated for our use will be cleaned and aired throughout. We as a team have no health issues and have had no contact with anyone with the virus.
We want to make this course an exciting and fun-filled experience serving as a creative distraction from the recent lockdown we have all had to endure.
Each day will start at 10am and finish at 3pm with the show at 2pm on the Friday. We will be based at the Ekeby site and the cost of the course is 2334 SEK.
To book a place, please contact Thomas Kett at Upstage Productions on firstname.lastname@example.org. More info about the company can be found here: www.upstagemusicalproductions.com
Local school update
The wonderful parent-run Svea Montessori nursery school in Djursholm has space for one or two small children coming up. The school takes around 30 children in total across two groups, children age 1-3 in one group and 4-6 year-olds and is situated behind Djursholms Delikatesser.
There are a couple of spaces available for children born in 2018 and 2019.
The förskola is run by the parents and has slightly shorter opening hours than the council nursery schools have. If you are a parent that likes to get involved, you can!

Local business update
Danderyd-based online toy store, ABC Leksaker, has a wonderful selection of toys, many of which are educational and come with English instructions. Their focus right now is on personal service - give them a call - and fast delivery. The shop offers home deliver - so not to your local post point but direct to your door - look out for the product MyPack HOME and add that to your basket.
We got some of their SMART GAMES puzzles to get us through the chicken pox a few weeks ago and can specifically recommend the magnet travel games for one player that kids can do - on their own!
Look out for the tips for keeping kids entertained on their blog too.

On Monday 17th December, criminologist Maria Dufva will be sharing her experience and knowledge about our children’s life online (in Swedish, click here tickets www.familyflow.se/butik). The talk is organised by Family Flow and we got in touch with Ulrika Fallenius that runs it, to see what else she and the company do.
Ulrika's answer? Parenting made easy!
Parenting Facilitor Ulrika Fallenius runs Family Flow from her home in Djursholm. Parents are invited for a healthy breakfast in her kitchen followed by a workshop by the open fire in the living room. They meet to discuss and learn how to handle the day-to-day challenges of being a parent.
"We don’t dictate how you should bring up your children," says Ulrika. "We help you to understand your child’s temperament, define your own family values and give you tools to stay calm, as well as to manage your child’s behaviours. These make life as a parent easier and more fulfilling and help you to build an even stronger connection with your child so that they thrive, boosting their self-worth too."
Courses and workshops are designed for parents with children aged 4-years up to and including teenagers. Topics covered are (among others):
For those who can’t make it to the courses, Ulrika offers an in-depth online parenting course as well as private consultations, face-to-face or on Skype. Ulrika trained in London so is very happy to help in English!
Daily reminders and words of parenting wisdom can be found on Instagram at @familyflow.se and for more information about the courses and contact with Ulrika, check out www.familyflow.se
