Early Childhood Family Fair set for Saturday

While Petersburg is a small town, it’s big on resources for young children. There’s the Eagles Nest after school program and Tlingit Haida Head Start as well as the Infant learning Program and more. Parents can find out more about local services for their kids and visit with developmental specialists during this weekend’s Early Childhood Family Fair. Meanwhile, the kids get to check out a fire truck, an ambulance or a coast guard boat, get their faces painted, and have their bikes checked for safety among other activities. Matt Lichtenstein produced this preview with some of Petersburg’s early childhood professionals and a few Eagles Nest kids who were pretty excited about the event.

Petersburg’s Early Childhood Family fair takes place on Saturday from 10 to 12 at the Elementary School, The Children’s Center and along Dolphin Street.
