Make Children First Network
The place to be this Saturday after Farmer’s Market, soccer, etc. is Skeena Jr. Secondary School! This year’s Early Years Family Fair has been invited to setup at the school’s gym to partner with Relay for Life.
The Early Years Family Fair offers information and activities for parents and their children from pregnancy to age 6. The Fair which runs from 10 am till 2 pm is sponsored and organized by Terrace Make Children First Network in collaboration with its member organizations that provide services and programs in the community. The event is brought to you free of charge.
“I’m very excited for this year’s event as we have a great participation from both returning and new exhibitors who will be offering great experiences for children and their families”, says Saša Loggin, Make Children First Network Coordinator. “There will be enough to do so allow enough time”, she adds.
So what will you find:
The Fair is again organized into four main service areas: health & development; literacy, childcare and family supports. This year’s theme promotes social development and play – very critically important to healthy development of your child’s brain.
As a special treat, we are pleased to introduce a musical performance: Amanda Annibal, Strong Start Centre coordinator currently on maternity leave has assembled a diverse group of musicians who will perform children songs in the dance room two or three times during the day. Watch for schedules posted in the school.
As you can imagine, the Skeena parking lot is going to be a very busy place. We ordered sun for the day so please plan to walk. If you have to drive, consider using the Caledonia School/REM Lee Theatre parking lots located two blocks north of Skeena School. We want everyone to be safe.
You are all welcome to visit the amazing Relay for Life event which takes place on the Skeena track from 10 am till 10 pm.
