On May 11, we held a successful Kid Builders kickoff event at Anaheim’s Sunkist Elementary School. More than 180 people attended, including many families with young children, media, local dignitaries, and community leaders. Dr. Baschshi opened the event by describing the importance of early childhood development, and Jackie Filbeck shared her first-hand experience using Kid Builders with her four grandchildren under five. Anaheim Elementary School District Superintendent Dr. Downing closed the introductory portion of the event and invited everyone to experience the Kid Builder activity stations and tour the onsite Learning Link.
The event also coincided with the exciting launch of our Instagram page, @First5OrangeCounty. This page will share more fun Kid Builders-focused content and activities, and will be a useful resource for parents and the community.
