Our early childhood materials area has been well-loved since it was started. It has been amazing to not only watch the kids form friendships and bonds, but to watch the parents let go and play too. The kids have so much fun, that several times a week they leave crying because they're not ready to go yet. Beyond our early childhood materials area, we have had some great success with our parent/child workshops: 1-2-3 Play With Me. The families have loved the opportunity to meet other families in the area as well as getting to know the resource professionals and the services their organizations provide. The majority of our partnerships and resource professionals were with other county departments, but as the year continued, We worked hard to develop new partnerships with different community resources like the local school district and a Kindermusik studio. We are looking forward to the new partnerships we might discover in the future.
