Discovery Day a Fun & Informative Event for Families


<< Back to CCPS News

Discovery Day, a resource fair for families of children ages birth through five years, was recently held at Tuckhoe State Park in Ridgely. The event was sponsored by Family Support Services and Special Education Citizens Advisory Committees (SECAC) of Caroline, Talbot, and Queen Anne’s County Public Schools, and has been held annually for the past several years.

Professionals in the areas of children’s health, development, education, safety, and recreation were on hand to provide information, share resources, and answer questions. Lunch was provided at no costs to attendees, and children were able to participate in face painting, a petting zoo, cookie decorating, an obstacle course and other fun activities.

The event was made possible by generous donations from the community and the help of volunteers who staffed in all areas. Special thanks to Eastern Springs Water Company in Preston for the donation of bottled water, and Tuckahoe State Park for hosting the event. Event photos may be found on the CCPS Flickr page.
