The North Carolina Apple Festival is pleased to announce that we will have The Mobile Learning Adventure (MLA) at this year’s Festival. The MLA is a traveling exhibit that provides an opportunity for parents and caregivers to learn about the importance of early childhood education while they engage in fun activities with their children. A part of PNC Grow Up Great – a $350 million, multi-year initiative that began in 2004 to help children from birth to age 5 for success in school and life – the MLA includes interactive kiosks and the “When I Grow Up” station, where kids dress up as different professionals and have their picture superimposed on an appropriate background. In addition, parents can take home activity books and learning kits that demonstrate how to take everyday moments and turn them into learning opportunities.
The MLA will be located in the 600 Block of Main Street on Friday, September 4, 2015 through Sunday, September 6, 2015. Our special thanks to PNC Foundation for providing it to us this year and to the Children and Family Resource Center of Henderson County and Smart Start of Henderson County for their local support.
