Child Development fete offers educational fun for area children and their parents

The campus’ Child Development Center recently held its annual Family Fun Night, offering an opportunity for area youth and their parents to take part in games that are enjoyable as well as challenging for the mind and body. Approximately 200 individuals took part in the event.

The event also offered a valuable learning experience for OU-C education students who participated.

 “It is really exciting to see the kids play and spend time with their parents. I love to see how the little kids have fun and smile,” Kendra Barnes said.

Paige Bennett said, “I like to see how they have fun and learn at the same time. It is good to see the parents interact with the children. From this, I learn how to handle various grade levels, which will help me in my career.”

Natalie Dalessandri commented, “It is a good learning experience and an opportunity to see the children have fun. It is an opportunity to interact with community members.”

The enterprise was a true team effort. Besides the child development center, other partners in the enterprise are the United Way of Ross County, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library as well as the Chillicothe and Ross County Public Library.
