Smart Start of New Hanover County To Hold Second Annual Early Childhood Family Festival

October 21st, 2016 | Posted in Uncategorized

Smart Start of New Hanover County will hold its second annual Early Childhood Family Festival on November 5, 2016 from 10am until 1pm. With more than 30 activities and vendors providing hands-on experiences for children ages 5 and under, the event will take place in the parking lot in front of Smart Start, at 3534 South College Road.
There are only 2,000 days between the day a child is born and when they show up for kindergarten. During those days, 90% of brain growth occurs, and the quality of experiences a child has will influence the strength of their foundation for learning and success in life. The goal of the event is to introduce families with young children to the myriad of resources available to them to help during this critical time, and to provide opportunities for quality experiences for parents to replicate at home.
Some of the highlights of this year’s event include a visit with live reptiles from the NC Aquarium, performance by the Broccoli Brothers, free fresh produce from Nourish NC, a bounce house, photo booth, face-painting, block play, story time by the New Hanover County Library and much more.
