Smart Baby Ambassador Program Kicked off at MLK Parade

The Smart Baby Ambassadors marched in the annual MLK Day Parade on January 15, 2015, to the sweet sounds of James Broxton and his band! Several community leaders participated in the WALK wearing their "Smart Baby Ambassador" t-shirts and handing out wristbands that say "Read. Talk. Play. Sing. Create Smart Babies." The purpose of this message is to encourage activities that will promote oral language, and thereby help our children to be ready for kindergarten!

 

After the parade, the group participated in the MLK Day picnic by offering free "graduation photos" of young children wearing a graduation cap/gown and holding a sign that showed their future graduation year. The group also signed up parents to participate in the free READY FOR K! program where they are given free parenting classes and educational toys for their children. For more information on the READY FOR K! program or if you want to become a Smart Baby Ambassador, please contact Sue Curtis by calling toll free 877-548-7323.
