Graves elementary schools' Toddler Time

Toddler Time participant Jordan Hughes seems to have found a new friend in a puppet his mother, Jessica Hughes, brought to life for him recently at Graves County Central Elementary School. Family Resource Center director Andrea Elliott initiated Toddler Time at Sedalia and Cuba during the 2010-11 school year. The program expanded over time to other Graves County elementary schools, including Farmington, Symsonia, and Wingo. Plans are to bring Toddler Time to Fancy Farm and Lowes soon. “The idea is to help young children become familiar with school before they’re old enough to attend regularly. When they visit, they get excited about things they can do at school like learning, making new friendships, and having fun,” said Central Elementary FRC director Juliana Reyes. She added, “At Central, we are fortunate to partner for Toddler Time with the Head Start and Early Head Start programs here on our campus.” Once each month Toddler Time sessions involve both young children and their parents. They enjoy playing together and being “in school.” To learn more, contact any Graves County elementary school or its family resource center.
