6th Annual School Readiness Fair in Wicomico County


SALISBURY, Md. - Do you have a child who will be starting school for the first time next year? Hundreds of families with children ages 1 to 5 will learn more about early childhood education and expectations at the 6th Annual School Readiness Fair, put on by the Wicomico County Judy Center Partnership and Wicomico County Public Schools.

The School Readiness Fair will take place from 4-7 p.m. Friday, July 26 at Prince Street Elementary School. This free event for young children and their families will showcase the many aspects of early childhood education and services available in the community, and will help parents and guardians ensure that their child is ready to get a good start on school. Hundreds of young children and their families are expected to take advantage of this midsummer opportunity to get a great start to their school careers.

Children will have the opportunity to meet Buster the School Bus, who will guide them through the basics of school bus safety. They'll also get to board a school bus and talk with the driver. Inside the School Readiness Fair, they'll be able to meet principals and assistant principals from Wicomico elementary schools, and pick up free learning materials to take home.

Parents will be able to visit exhibit tables to receive information on area child care centers, family child care providers, the Lower Shore Child Care Resource Center, Head Start, the Judy Center (serving children in the Beaver Run and Pemberton school districts), Wicomico County Library and the Wicomico County Health Department, which will have information on programs and immunizations. There will be great door prizes and fun activities for children. Dinner will be provided.

Families who have not registered for pre kindergarten or kindergarten will have the chance to do so at the School Readiness Fair.
