GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) There is a one-stop shop where parents can find the right childcare provider or preschool for their child.
The first-ever Play, Learn, Explore Early Childhood Resource Fair takes place on April 23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It will include dozens of childcare providers, preschools, and family services so parents can explore multiple options at once.
Bring the kids! Children will get to meet Maranda from WOTV 4 Women, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Curious George, and several mascots from local sports teams. There will also be fire trucks, a dress-up station, story times, and puppet shows. Free vision and hearing screenings will also be offered for babies and toddlers.
The free event, presented by PNC Bank, will be at the Kent Career Tech Center at 1655 East Beltline Avenue NE. Attendees should park in lots 1 and 5. The first 500 families receive goodie bags!
