Children from child care centers and homes across Richmond County enjoyed a special treat Wednesday as the Richmond County Partnership for Children hosted a day at their office. Children enjoyed games such as fishing for prizes, face and hand painting, outdoor dancing as well as homemade ice cream.
The Partnership hosts the day each year during Week of the Young Child, which focuses attention on the needs of young children and their families and recognizes early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.
The fun continues on Saturday when the Partnership co-hosts the annual Fun Day with Richmond Community College. The free event will be held on the college campus from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is open to the public.
Children can make crafts, listen to stories, play games and much more. A car seat check station will allow parents to receive assistance with the proper installation of car seats.
