With dozens of education booths, free books, musical entertainment and a free train ride, the Flagstaff Early Childhood Fair drew an impressive crowd on April 9 at Flagstaff High School.

With the theme “Full STEAM Ahead,” the annual fair provided parents with information on a variety of early childhood programs available in the region.

From gardening to exploring the cosmos, the event provided hands on activities that show how the early years are the best time to promote skills for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.

Presented by the Flagstaff Alliance for Children’s Early Success and sponsors First Things First, North Country HealthCare, FUSD and Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth, the fair also included a teacher supply swap, free dental screenings for kids and pregnant moms and free rides on the Flagstaff Kiddie Caboose!
