Kids Fest Fun

Kids Fest was held Friday, June 16th, at the American 1 Events Center and Great Start was there!  We were able to speak with many families regarding their current child care options as well as hear any child care questions/concerns they may currently have.  Because one of our goals this year is to begin looking at child care needs within Jackson County in order to help offer more options for families, these conversations will be extremely beneficial.

In addition to our child care discussion, we had preschool interest forms on hand.  Any family with a child that will be age 4 by September 1st, 2017 was invited to complete a form or was given a flyer on how to complete the form online.  A cinch bag filled with different goodies was given to each family that completed the form at Kids Fest as a gift for their upcoming preschooler!

Also at Kids Fest, Jen Ganzel - Parent Liasion for Great Start Families, put together a fun necklace craft for the kids consisting of Fruit Loops and colored noodles.  It was extremely popular and for the entire day, children could be seen walking around with their colorful necklaces or crowns! 

Looking forward to next year!
