13th Annual Boone County Early Childhood Fair

Are you new to the area or looking for services for your very young child? Stop by the Early Childhood Fair at Boone County Public Library, 1786 Burlington Pike in Burlington, on Saturday, February 4 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a fun way to get information about local activities and services for children ages birth to five.

Over 40 vendors will be on hand to help you better understand your child’s development and how to make the most of this early period. Your child will enjoy seeing Tales the Library Dragon, Pete the Cat and live animals from the Cincinnati Zoo! You and your little one can participate in fun activities and have a chance to win door prizes. What a great way to spend quality time together!

The Kentucky Lions Club Kidsight program will provide vision screenings for children, ages one to six, during the fair. No registration is needed for vision screenings.

Boone County Community Early Childhood Council (CECC) will be sponsoring free developmental screenings for children, ages one month to five years, focusing on children’s cognitive, language, motor, and social skills. A developmental screening will help you find out if your child is experiencing challenges that could prevent him or her from reaching his full potential. A screening will not only allow you to catch problems early, but can also provide reassurance that your child is acting, playing or speaking in ways that are expected at different ages. The first five years of life lay the foundation for future learning. Sign up for a screening and ensure your child is on track for school success. Developmental screenings are available by appointment from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Register by calling 342-BOOK, extension 8138.
