Parents of young children will want to mark their calendars for an event in November which will supply important information about early childhood resources in Canton. The event, to be held on Saturday, November 10 from 1:00-3:00 PM, is cosponsored by Canton Public Library and Canton Parents as Teachers (CPAT) and will be held in the multi-purpose room of the Canton Community Center.
Each participating group (preschools, nursery schools, playgroup providers, CPAT, Canton Parks and Recreation, and Canton Public Library, to name a few) will have a table or booth highlighting the services they provide for children younger than school age.
Groups that attended last year and will likely be participants this year include Canton Community Nursery School, Trinity Nursery School, Joni’s Childcare, FAVARH (which has a children’s playgroup), Stepping Stones Educational Center, and the Cherry Brook Primary School Preschool Integrated Program. There will be information available about free developmental screenings for three- and four-year-olds on an ongoing basis to Canton residents through the Cherry Brook Primary School.
Parents, guardians, and caregivers can “meet and greet” with participants for two hours on the afternoon of November 10. The event takes place in advance of any open houses and enrollment deadlines for next year. Children are welcome and encouraged to attend, and many participating will have fun, interactive elements for children at their respective tables.
