During the months of January to March, members of the Tri-Cities Early Childhood Development Committee developed and distributed a Child's Rights Kit to a variety of Tri-Cities programs to gather the voices of children ages 3-5 on what they need to grow up happy and healthy.
Included in the kit is the book Whoever You Are by Mem Fox.
During the month of April, we will be be combining the voices of the younger children with what was gathered at November's Tri-Cities Kids Conference to create the initial draft of a Tri-Cities Children's Charter of Rights. This draft will be made public on May 21, 2015 at the 6th Annual Tri-Cities Champions for Children Awards of Excellence Event and posted on this website soon after.
Stay tuned for more!
