As Vermont’s Field Days wind down, attention turns “back to school” this month. Parents are thinking about stocking backpacks and lunchboxes, while Let’s Grow Kids is working to ensure all Vermonters realize that getting ready for school means much more. In fact, the statewide Let’s Grow Kids campaign wants Vermonters to think about education long before any school bell rings. They’re on a mission to let everyone know that learning begins at birth and the quality of our children’s early experiences helps build the foundation for their future success.
Let’s Grow Kids and its life-sized version of the children’s classic board game, Chutes and Ladders, will be at the following upcoming Field Days and events:
· Addison County Field Days (Vergennes), August 5 – 9
· Mazza’s Family Fun Day (Colchester), August 16
· Caledonia County Fair (Lyndonville) , August 20 - 24
· Champlain Valley Fair (Essex), August 22 – 30
· Vermont State Fair (Rutland), August 31 – September 7
· Tunbridge World’s Fair (Tunbridge), September 11 – 14
