MORRISTOWN, N.J. — The Plainfield High School Teen Parenting Program spent a beautiful day at Wightman Farms this weekend. The teen parents and their children rode on a 20-minute hayride through the beautiful scenic farmland. They picked pumpkins right from the vine and were treated to apple cider donuts and apple cider made fresh on the farm. The children climbed on the playground equipment made of hay bales and slides and took pictures with giant pumpkins. 

Brooke Vuono, Director of the Team Parenting Program, said, “A fun day was had by all. This is one of many outings we sponsor during the year to encourage parent-child interaction and parent and me activities.”

The program offers the students free daycare services for children six-weeks to 3-years-old. The center is a licensed daycare with a staff of five employees, a social worker and a director.
