Annual Early Childhood Information Fair, Mar. 19

Finding the right childcare/preschool/recreational activity fit for your child can be a very lengthy and stressful time for a parent. That is why the Watertown Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Council of which the Watertown Family Network is a member will host its annual Early Childhood Information Fair on Saturday, March 19th from 9:30 to 11:30 AM at the Watertown Middle School, 68 Waverly Ave. 

Faculty, staff and volunteers from local preschools, childcare centers, family daycares, as well as Early Intervention, WIC, private and public schools, local Churches, Watertown Free Public Library and many other organizations that service young children and their families will staff booths aimed at informing parents of their services and options. The fair creates the perfect low-key atmosphere where parents can stroll around gathering information about the many but sometimes hidden educational and recreational opportunities for preschool children and younger within Watertown and the surrounding communities. 

During the fair each booth will offer a simple craft activity for the children so that parents are free to ask questions and gather information. Following the fair there will be a FREE family concert with Matt Heaton at 11:30 am. Refreshments will also be offered to fair goers. The best thing that we can do for parents, who are for the first time making a decision on their children’s education, is to make them aware of the questions that they should ask when they visit various preschools as well as general information on these facilities. The fair on the 19th gives parents a head start in their search for the right early education and care for their children.
