Children's Developmental Center hosts "Play Date in the Park"

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- Nearly 100 families came out to Howard Amon Park Tuesday for a "Play Date in the Park." It was the Children's Developmental Center's 1st annual event. The center helps children from birth to age three who have special needs.

Tuesday was a good chance for the kids to play, while working on some of their skills. Anetra Fish, Special Instruction Teacher at the Children's Developmental Center, explains, "We're out here just having a day for the kids to socialize, to try new tasks. There's art activities, motor activities, music activities. We have all of our therapists and teachers here too."

Cheryl Parker was at the park with her 19 month-old son Jayden. She said it was a great day in the park to see friends and learn. She says, "We played with bubbles, made Gak, painted rocks. We had fun playing with music and just had a good time."

Parker and other parents say it was also a great chance to connect with other moms and dads.
