  • Story Time and Free Info and Discussion on Early Child Development

    On Wednesday, June 12th at 10 a.m, Miss Paulina will conduct a drop-in story time for children ages 15 months to 4 years old. Representatives from the Richie McFarland Children's Center will be on hand before and after to talk with you about your child's development and to share the range of services they offer for youngsters. RMCC provides pediatric therapy programs, including speech, visual tracking, fine and gross motor skills, and social and communication skills.

    This is a great opportunity to speak with them about concerns specific to your little one—or just to gain valuable information about childhood benchmarks and progress in general.
