SUNY Broome Holds 35th Annual Children's Fair

SUNY Broome is celebrating the community's youngest learners.

Saturday the college held its 35th annual Children's Fair. This year's theme was Celebrating Our Youngest Learners and more than 250 families showed up.
Hands-on exercises were created by SUNY Broome and the Binghamton Association for the Education of Young Children.

Some activities included gymnastics, sensory games and building block exercises. Kids could even get a peak inside of safety vehicles.

"When we talk about early child care a lot of people just believe it's a lot of play, we also believe that here, but it's the value of that play and understanding that every opportunity supports their development through their domains of learning. So socially and physically and language and cognitive, all really revolve around these activities," said President of Binghamton Association for the Education of Young Children Christine Webb.

The event cost $3 for children and adults were free with a non-perishable food item.
All of the goods from today's event went towards the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse.
Money contributions will also help fund child care in the Southern Tier.
