The Parent And Child Enrichment (PACE) Program is designed for families with children ages birth to five years-old to foster parent and child interaction in a fun, structured environment. PACE focuses on child social skills and learning, parent education and fun through activities including play time, circle-time activities, art projects, story time and snack. Come try PACE offered during the day and in the evening both in Seymour and Black Creek -- whatever works in your schedule (see below for PACE schedule).
Two PACE sessions, approximately 17 weeks each, are offered during the school year. Cost per session for children aged one and older is only $25 for your first child, $20 for your second child, and $5 for each additional child, with a maximum of $50 per family. Children under one are free, but donations are appreciated. That’s less than $1 a week for each child!
And, scholarships are available. Attend PACE to register.
