Looking For Activities To Do With Your Child?
Head Start Body Start National Center for Physical Development and Outdoor Play (HSBS) is the place to find information and resources to engage young children (ages 0-5) and their families in active play and meaningful movement! Here is a link for new and creative movement ideas. Print out a new activity calendar each month or print out a perpetual calendar. Either way it is a lot of active fun for kids!
The Collaborative has focused on making connections with young families through our Family Fun Day, where at least 135 young children participated in several physical activities, holding a Preschool Expo, and Bookmobile visits.
In an effort to be a ”go to” source for information, we have created tools for better communication such as our Community Resource Directory and a brand new website. We held our first Annual Celebrating Families Event last year for a day of learning and fun. Children were entertained and well cared for by our partner CASTLE while parents attended breakout sessions that covered the most pressing needs of today's parents/caregivers including; creating healthy lifestyles, making financial decisions in today's economy, developing early literacy and number sense for your preschooler or kindergartener. There is still much to be done. We invite all of you to join in and find your place in ensuring that Colchester
continues to be a great place for kids!
