Festival of Wellness June 2 at Barriere Elementary 10 - 2 pm

If you have a child five-years-old or under it’s time to mark your calendar for Tuesday, June 2, 10 a.m. to 12 noon at the Barriere Elementary School gymnasium for the Festival of Wellness.

This is a free event hosted by Barriere Elementary School, Ready Set Learn and Success by Six.

This event focuses on providing resources, information and support to parents and children ages three and four, however we welcome and encourage all families with children up to the age of five to come and learn and play together.

The event will include guest presenters with booths set up that include information and tools from various service providers and professionals which foster healthy child development such as nutrition, growth, dental, hearing, vision, getting ready for kindergarten, child safety and more.

Parents will have the opportunity to have their children’s hearing and vision screened as well as Ages and Stages Developmental screening, to name a few.

There will be face painting, gifts and door prizes as well.

In order to ensure there are enough supplies to fill each child’s gift bag with age appropriate, developmentally stimulating gifts, organizers ask that parents and caregivers please be sure to register your child by RSVP’ing to Barriere Elementary School or calling 250-672-9916.  For more information about the Wellness Festival or Ready Set Learn call Adrienne Pullen at 250-672-9773, or Jody Schilling at 250-672-9916.
