A free community celebration and family fun day Saturday, Sept. 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Brookside Park will launch a new and exciting movement: Pasadena as an Early Learning City. Parents with children, expectant parents, grandparents and other caregivers, preschool teachers and community advocates for young children are especially encouraged to attend this very special event.
Activities will include a pancake breakfast prepared by Pasadena police officers, storytelling, bubble play, arts and crafts, hot dogs grilled by Pasadena firefighters, entertainment by local school bands, cooking demonstrations by Food Network celebrity chef Jet Tila, community resources related to parenting, early childhood, health and much more.
Too many children are already behind when they enter kindergarten, and this takes a toll as they progress through their school years. Pasadena as an Early Learning City will help ensure all children will thrive in their physical, emotional, cognitive and social well-being and their ability to learn when they enter school.
So come learn more about it, have some fun, enjoy free food and entertainment, all in the great outdoors at Brookside Park!
The launch of Pasadena as an Early Learning City is sponsored by the City of Pasadena.
