Early Childhood Day Scheduled for Aug. 12 Offers Kids a Great Start

The 2017 Charles County Early Childhood Day is a free event that provides parents, caregivers, and early childhood professionals with resources to help children get a jump start on education.  Engaging activities for young children will be provided by the vendors in attendance. The rain or shine event takes place on Saturday, Aug. 12 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Capital Clubhouse (3033 Waldorf Marketplace, Waldorf).  
 
With a “back-to-school” theme, Early Childhood Day brings child care providers, early learning experts, and organizations that work with children and families together in Charles County. The Charles County Sheriff’s Office will teach kids about safety with McGruff, Charles County Public Library will feature the new Mobile Library and issue library cards, Maryland Kids In Safety Seats will provide car seat safety demonstrations, and the Humane Society of Charles County will provide opportunities to cuddle and learn about animals.  Face painting, balloons, music, games, rock climbing, totsicles, physical fitness activities, backpacks, door prizes, storytellers, and storybook characters are just a few of the kid-friendly options available.  
 
Early childhood matters in Charles County. The Early Childhood Advisory Council's mission is that all Charles County children, age newborn through five, enter school ready to learn.
