At a Business and Professional Exchange meeting today, I met Dr. Skinner. She is a long time Kokomoan and has contributed highly to our community and to the Kokomo School system. She operates a special education childhood center I wanted to let you know about. I visited the center and it’s really cool!! Check this out!
Parents are the first teachers from birth until the child enters school. The Very Early Childhood Education Center located in the Inventrek Building wants to help you be your child’s best first teacher. The program is FREE!
- They will send you a newsletter each month with ideas and suggestions.
- They will loan you a tote of toys and books each month that is appropriate for the age of your child (ren).
- They have a wonderful Activity where YOU can help your child learn through play. Painting, clay, blocks, crafts, toys, using imagination, bowling, hop scotch, bean bag toss, and much more.
The center is located in the Inventrek Building at 700 E. Firmin, Kokomo. It is room 208. They are open Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Give them a call at 457-0858 ext 219 or drop by for a visit during open hours. An adult (parent, grandparent, caregiver, etc.) must always be with and play with the child (ren). The program is appropriate for children birth to six years of age.
AND IT’S FREE!
