New Albany, MS- EXCEL By 5/New Albany-Union County is planning a “career expo” for our city and county’s youngest students.
The event will be held at the Union County Fairgrounds on October 12 from 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. for 4 and 5-year-old children. Children will rotate through 18-20 stations to learn about career possibilities. It is an opportunity to expose them to the variety of careers that are available to them.
Students that are in our public schools will attend. Parents, grandparents, daycare centers and in-home childcare providers are invited to participate by bringing 4 and 5-year-old children to join us for this exciting event.
Excel By 5 is a community-based certification designed to improve a child’s overall well-being by age five. The first-of-its-kind in the United States, this program emphasizes the important roles communities play in educating their children during their most formative years–birth to five. Excel By 5 sets forth a variety of standards involving parent training, community participation, child care and health to help communities focus on supporting young children and their families.
