Burlington Community Health Fair


Early Learner Series, Thursday April 9th

The next session of the Burlington Public Schools Early Learner Series is this Thursday, April 9th. The session will take place from 7:00pm – 8:00pm in the Burlington Early Childhood Center (BECC).  The topic for this month’s discussion is Fine and Gross Motor Activities.  We will discuss why development in these areas is important and how to help foster that at home.  We will be providing lots of examples of activities you can do with your children! We will leave ample time to answer questions and troubleshoot any challenges you may come across in this area.  We look forward to seeing everyone Thursday night!
