Kootenay Family Place Neighbourhood House celebrated National Child Day on November 22 this year with their annual Screening Day for children.  Parents of 22 children signed up to find out more about their child's stage of development, using a play-based approach and administered by KFP's speech therapist, infant development consultants and supported child development consultants.  This is a free service KFP provides each year for National Child Day.

Twenty four additional parents and 33 children enjoyed activities throughout the day, including story time from CBAL, a visit with the dental hygienist, a display from the West Kootenay Dhoula Group, Jelly Bean Junction, Usborn Books, crafts, games, homemade soups and snacks.  Watch for an extra special event next November as Kootenay Family Place will be celebrating it's 40th anniversary.
