Preschool Fair Scheduled for April 29

 A Preschool Fair is set for Tuesday, April 29 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. CT at the Community Center in Knox.

Sarah Origer, Director of Development at the Starke County Community Foundation encourages all residents to attend for this information session.

“We hope that all Starke County preschools will be present,” said Origer. “It will also be an opportunity for parents and grandparents and children to come out and learn about a lot of the other enriching opportunities that exist in Starke County. Libraries will be present, Community Services of Starke County will also be there along with Healthlinc. Your child’s health is also incredibly important. It’ll just be a great opportunity.”

The Starke County Early Childhood Education Advisory Council put together this event which includes activities for children, a free meal and information about preschool scholarships.

Preschool is important in a child’s early education and there are plenty of community organizations getting behind the importance of preschool.

“There are a lot of people in our community who are passionate about preschool education. We meet regularly and this was one of the things that the Starke County Early Childhood Education Advisory Committee really felt was important to sponsor. It’s also being sponsored by the Community Foundation, by Moving Starke County Forward and by IU Health.”
