Families First Spring Carnival Is This Week-End

Once a year, Families First, an independent, non-profit organization which has been supporting Brooklyn families for the past thirty four years, is holding its annual Spring Carnival this coming Saturday.
If you live in the area, have small children, and have not yet heard about this wonderful resource, you should get to know it.  It is a wonderful way to connect to other parents and the center offers great classes and a wonderful play space.

Here is more information on the Carnival:
"On Saturday, May 16 from 10am to 2pm, the Families First Annual Spring Carnival will take place on Baltic Street, between Court and Clinton Streets in Cobble Hill. Sponsored by Families First, which is located at 250 Baltic Street, the day is a celebration of family and community forfamilies of toddlers to kindergarten-aged children.
The Carnival features the kids’ favorites: petting zoo, a bouncy house, face painting, tattoos, mini-carousel, carnival games, arts & crafts, a bake sale, a used book sale and balloons!

The Annual Spring Carnival is the principle fundraiser forFamilies First, a not-for-profit organization established in 1981 to provide families with children’s classes, workshops for parents, and an indoor PlaySpace. Parents, caregivers, and young children from six months to 5 years find a warm and supportive educational environment here that prepares them to successfully enter the school age years. Other sources of support for Families First are membership and program fees, grants and donations.

We would like to thank Ridgewood Savings Bank and other corporate sponsors for underwriting assistance for the 2015 Spring Carnival. Proceeds from the event will be used to support parent/child education programs at Families First."
