Proto was excited to be part of Encompass’ “The Big Event for Little Kids” on April 8. Participants had the opportunity to make a scrap contraption, and check out our summer offerings for “Camp Contraption.” All of the activities at the event fit in with Encompass’ theme of Explore, Play, and Discover.

Kids could create art projects, sing and dance with interactive performers, play with live farm animals, and play basketball. There were even some guest appearance by Packer’s players to sign autographs! (I’m pretty sure it wasn’t just the kids who were excited about that aspect…)

This educational and fun event has been a major fundraiser for Encompass Early Education and Care, raising over $1.45m over the last 28 years. The proceeds are used to ensure quality early education and care to children, regardless of their economic circumstances.

We’ve greatly enjoyed the last two times we’ve participated with this event, and look forward to being involved in the future.
