Orange County Parent Child Center is a local treasure! You find it on 110, as you head south from Chelsea. Year-round, we operate a wide range of family services, including an Early Childhood Education program for 50+ children aged 6 weeks - 5 years. Inside and outside the building, children play, run, jump, laugh, and learn. And they make art--drawing, painting, sticking, cutting, pasting, and more. It's all fun! We hope you enjoy the exuberant efforts of our community's littlest artists as much as they enjoyed making their pictures! www.orangecountypcc.org/
Join us for a reception at the library on Friday, July 29th from 4:30 to 6:00 PM.
