Exeter PAT teachers youngsters about vehicles
'Things that go' come to school district
On Sept. 23, the Exeter Parents as Teachers Program held its monthly group connection meeting.
This month, they featured "things that go." During the event, children were able to climb aboard and explore 20 different vehicles. Some of the vehicles included were the Exeter fire truck, a MoDOT truck, a Mercy ambulance and the Mercy LifeLine helicopter.
The event provided an opportunity for the children to understand the world around them, and their place in it. Early childhood has been recognized as a period when investments in healthy development increase a child's readiness to succeed in school and in life.
The Exeter Parents as Teachers home visiting program provides a system of care for families and young children and holds a vision where all children will learn, grow, develop and reach their full potential, and recognizes parents as their first and best teachers.
The group would like to express thanks to all volunteers who helped make the day a success, and to all of the individuals and organizations who brought vehicles for the children to explore.
