The Agassiz Harrison Early Years is hosting our 12th Annual Child Development Fun Fair. The Child Development Fun Fair is an event for young families with children aged 0- 6 years of age. It is an opportunity for parents and caregivers to learn about the amazing resources, services and programs found within Agassiz, Harrison, Seabird and Chilliwack specifically for young children and families. There will be many professionals to talk with who are dedicated to child development such as the Fraser Valley Child Development Centre, Fraser Health Unit, Seabird Island Dental Clinic, Speech and Language, various daycares, preschools and day programs. Free Developmental Screening will be offered. Prospera Credit Union, a proud sponsor of Agassiz Harrison Early Years, will have a table set up to talk about banking options for you and your child.
But this fair isn’t just for the adults! It is for the kids too. It is an opportunity for children to engage in fun activities such as physical movement, challenges, music and learning Halq’emeylem. Each station will provide your child with fun and engaging play throughout the entire event. Little Kickers will be there for a soccer demonstration starting at 12:30 p.m.
This year our event will be held at Seabird Island. Jonny Williams, Seabird Island’s Youth Worker will be drumming and singing starting at 1 p.m. Children are invited to participate in Total Physical Response (TPR). TPR is a language teaching method based on the coordination of language and physical movement.
Come on out to learn, have fun and talk with professionals about child development.
