High Five Fun Fest promotes school readiness

The Community Early Childhood Council will sponsor a High Five Fun Fest for school readiness on Saturday, May 11 at the Jessamine Early Learning Village.
The event, for families of children ages 3 to 5, is intended to get the word out about the council, who they are and what services they offer.
Community stakeholders will come together to create an event that will offer fun activities to highlight the five domains of early learning as defined by the Kentucky Governor’s Office of Early Childhood.
Activities will include a preschool dance party complete with a DJ, fun learning activities and games, the chance to meet the Tooth Fairy, climb aboard a real school bus, the opportunity to check out the Early Learning Village and much more.
Parents and caregivers can enter to win door prizes and receive information on how to prepare their children for kindergarten.
The Kentucky Governor’s Office has funded a grant for the establishment of the Jessamine County Community Early Childhood Council, made up of representatives from the Jessamine County Public Schools, the Jessamine County Public Library, Head Start, the Jessamine County Health Department, area childcare providers, United Way of the Bluegrass, Early Care Aware and more.
