The Ready Set Learn Festival of Wellness held in the gymnasium at Barriere Elementary last Tuesday was a wonderful venue for parents with children up to age five.  The event included guest presenters, information booths and service providers on site to answer questions and help parents with healthy child development such as nutrition, growth, dental and hearing, vision, getting ready for kindergarten and more. The event was hosted by Barriere Elementary, Success By Six and Ready Set Learn.
