Three Words: FREE Family FUN!

Now that the rush of back to school has died down, I’m sure you’ve had an opportunity to take a deep breath and unwind a little.

Back to school can bring lots of stress: getting the right school supplies, meeting new teachers, learning new rules and, of course, new expectations.

Childcare Resources believes that all children should have the opportunity to succeed.  We believe that family literacy is a great way to teach a variety of skills to prepare children for school.

That’s why Childcare Resources is proud to again participate in Read and Romp! Birmingham. Join us on Saturday, September 15th at Railroad Park from 9 am – 12 pm. Families with children ages 3 – 5 years will enjoy activities ranging from arts and crafts to physical activities, all which revolve around book themes. At the end of your fun, collect a free bag of books to enjoy at home!

Still not convinced it’s worth your time? Check out some of the fun from last year below!

Childcare Resources volunteers provided face paining to all attendees.Families participate in activities together at tables sponsored by various organizations.

Last year, our book was My First Book of Sign Language. We decorated hands with glitter, crayons, markers and stickers and learned simple signs. This year, our book is Bugs! Bugs! Bugs! Come find out what fun we’ll have to go along with it!

See you next Saturday!
