The Indiana University Northwest Child Care Center will host "Read, White and Blue, Reading is American," a Scholastic Book Fair from Monday, Oct. 12 through Friday, Oct. 15 at the Center, located on 35th Ave. and Washington St., from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
This literacy event is geared to excite children about reading and learning, according to Director Karen Grabske. The book fair will offer the most popular books and educational products for all ages, including the newest titles, award-winners, classics and interactive products from more that 150 publishers.
The Child Care Center offers three state-of-the-art multi-purpose classrooms that are specifically designed for children 3 to 12-years-old. With a staff trained and experienced in childcare, the center offers developmentally appropriate educational activities and games.
It is also home to the Early Literacy Academy, which is designed to raise awareness of the value of early intervention and provide programs and resources to parents and children from birth to six years of age. The academy is the research and service project of the IU Northwest's Shared Vision and offers literacy education, materials and workshops to local parents/caregivers to enrich family efforts and prepare their children for the opportunities that reading will bring.
