Openings available at co-op nursery
The Juneau Co-op Nursery school has immediate openings for children 18 months to 3 years old. This parent-run nursery school provides an opportunity for families of young children to gather in a weekly play group. It is located in the nursery room downstairs in the Northern Lights Church at 400 11th St. in Juneau.
The co-op uses the preschool's climbing room and outdoor playground as well as the church's large upstairs room. Six children attend from 9:30 a.m. to noon each weekday. For each day there is also a designated substitute who can attend whenever a child is absent.
Semester tuition (through May) for a child to attend once a week is $40 for a regular slot or $20 for a substitute slot. Two parents work each day, so each parent works about once every three weeks. Each parent is also assigned a volunteer job and one seasonal clean-up session. Parents should not expect the nursery to be dependable child-care. For registration information, call Becky Iverson at 463-3742 or Catherine Pusich at 780-4525.
Annerud receives humanitarian award
Juneau resident Dr. Carolyn Riederer Annerud was awarded a humanitarian award at the International Federation for Emergency Medicine Conference held June 6-10 in Cairns, Australia.
She was recognized by her colleagues for her support of emergency medicine in Papua New Guinea. In 2002, she was appointed by the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) as an emergency physician in residence. The following year, from interest generated from the 2002 AusAID visit, the University of Papua New Guinea developed training in emergency medicine.
