Families Have Fun Celebrating Spring at Jordan Child Development Center

It was a carnival-like atmosphere at the Jordan Child Development Center as children, their families and staff members came together for a fun Spring Festival. It was a pre-historic themed event with dinosaurs, fishing games, picture taking, color books and a big dinosaur egg hunt.

It was a festive way to bring everyone together for activities and ring in the new spring season.

Thanks to everyone involved in the Spring Festival for making it a night to remember for children and their families.
