Family Fair is a community event, held at Caroline Middle School from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Family Fair is a resource and information fair for families, students, people with special needs, child care providers, senior citizens and professionals. There are approximately 20 sessions of which participants will have three opportunities to attend a class of their choice throughout the day. We provide a separate schedule of events for youth and teens through our child supervision/teen programs, so that adults can attend sessions worry free. Breakfast and Lunch is provided with registration.

The goal of this event is to provide information concerning families (infants, youth, teens, & senior citizens), people with special needs, and professionals.  Family Fair also provides literacy, health and developmental screenings, childcare provider training, and child supervision.  Through our vendor fair we also promote the services available in our community and surrounding areas.
