Building Blocks for Kids Collaborative and Children’s Fairyland Partner to Support Iron Triangle Families
Building Blocks for Kids Collaborative and Children’s Fairyland in Oakland are planning to deepen their partnership with exciting new offerings for families in the Iron Triangle. Children’s Fairyland in Oakland will continue to periodically support all expense paid field trips for BBK Zone families, but a second collaboration will provide ongoing opportunities for a group of parents enrolled in the 22-week parenting series, Nurturing Parenting.
Together, BBK and Children’s Fairyland are offering participating parents and children three customized, interactive, and interrelated sessions that focus on developing and supporting early literacy. The sessions will emphasize the importance of talking, reading, and singing with children and provide tips for enhancing interactions between parents and children. The collaboration will also draw upon a myriad of in-house resources at Children’s Fairyland, including a horticulturalist, animal behaviorist, and other fantastic supports to make reading fun and relevant, not to mention goats and ponies!
