Celebrating early child development

A special event to celebrate the remarkable growth and development of children in their first few years of life will take place November 21

A special event to celebrate the remarkable growth and development of children in their first few years of life will take place on Monday, November 21 at the Brent Kennedy Learning Centre, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

It is an opportunity for parents to learn more about their child’s stage of development by meeting with their child and a trained consultant, using a questionnaire and play-based approach.

A special presentation on Safe Sleep for Infants, plus an open session of Mother Goose, will make this a fun and informative day.

Drop in for all or part of the morning, and take home important resource information.

Open to all families with babies and children ages 0 to 5, but for the individual sessions, book early, as space is limited.

Call Penny at 250-226-7605 to schedule an appointment, or for more information. Sponsored by the Slocan Valley Early Childhood Community Advisory Council.
