The Partnership’s Healthy Families/TANF Initiative for Parents of Essex kicked off Story Time in the Park on August 1, 2014 by providing each participant with a Healthy Bedtime Basket. We partnered with NJ Pajama Program and Reading Center to provide each participant with a new pair of Pajamas and an age appropriate book.
The purpose of the event was to improve bedtime habits and promote literacy. During the event the families learned about healthy bedtime routines and the importance of reading to their children.
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting this event every Friday in August, 2014. Details about the event are included below.
