BEDFORD, N.Y. – The Katonah-based Country Children's Center will wrap up its annual Earth Day celebration at its “Farm” location Sunday, April 21, in Katonah.
Scheduled to be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m at 466 Cross River Road, the event is part of the Country Children’s Center celebration of the Week of the Young Child, April 14 through April 20.
This year’s theme is ‘Early Years are Learning Years.”
“Today we know more than ever before about the importance of children’s earliest years in shaping their learning and development,” Country Children’s Center Executive Director Polly Peace said. “Never before have the needs of young children and their families been more pressing.”
The event, open to the public at $20 per family, will feature an array of activities and exhibits designed to highlight the importance of caring for the environment and promoting a sustainable way of life.
The Energize Lewisboro Home Energy Efficiency Program, sponsored by the Town of Lewisboro, will be on hand to arrange for free home energy audits and teachers from local schools will present science exhibits. Pony-rides, crafts, music, food and other “earthy” activities will be available for everyone in attendance.
The Country Children's Center was founded more than four decades ago as a small program operating out of the basement of the First Presbyterian Church of Katonah. CCC now serves more than 400 northern Westchester youngsters from infancy through elementary school in a variety of quality child care programs at sites in Katonah, Bedford Hills and Yorktown Heights.
