Save the Children hosts Easter Egg Hunt

Save the Children sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt on March 26, 2018. Shown are parents and children that participated in the event.

Things are hopping along this spring for Save the Children as they conduct monthly play and learn groups across the county.

The latest activity sponsored by the Early Steps to School Success program coordinated by Save the Children was an Easter Egg Hunt.

“We had over 50 families to attend that have children between the ages of birth to five year olds,” explained Brittany Carnes, an early childhood coordinator for the school district. “Every child that attended received an Easter Basket and an Easter Book.”

Early Childhood Coordinators assist families with children birth to age two and expecting mothers. The skills that the Early Childhood Coordinators work with families on are early language and social and emotional development and help prepare parents with the skills and knowledge to support their child’s growth.

Save the Children is new to Knox County and actively seeking new enrollment.  If you would like to take part in their next event focused on Mother’s Day and you are not signed up for the Save the Children program please contact a school close to you or call Brittany Carnes at 606-546-4859.
