Info and entertainment at Early Years Fair

Fair shares about services for those with babies to six year olds.

Families with young children are invited to gather at the Columbia Valley Centre this Friday, March 8th for a special event.

The event is an Early Years Fair, giving families an easy one-stop shop for all the events, support systems and more available in the Columbia Valley for families with kids aged 0-6.

“It’s a great opportunity to come out, meet people, and ask questions, and also be able to allow your children to have fun and play, and learn about the growth of a child,” says Ja’Net Knight-Barker, early years coordinator with Family Dynamix. “The reason is so we can connect families with the resources within their community, allow them to understand there is help for them when they need it.”

Aside from Family Dynamix on site, families can find information about Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy, area First Nations, Strong Start, Kindergarten readiness, and more.

Kids can watch Sprinkles the Clown, as well as participate in special storytime and crafts hosted by both the Radium and Invermere public libraries. There will be also some informative sessions for parents throughout the afternoon. And, as if there was not enough incentive to come already, there will also be some great door prizes available.

This free event, sponsored by the Columbia Valley Early Years Coalition, runs from 1-6 p.m. Friday, March 8th at the Columbia Valley Centre.
