Teddy bears and tea for kids

September 21, 2007

Albany-- Thronateeska Heritage Center played host this morning to the fourth annual Teddy Bear Tea Party. Preschool children, teachers, parents and grandparents all gathered for a fun filled morning of sing-a-longs, story telling and teddy bear craft making. Teachers say it's a great chance for preschool children to interact and encourage learning.

"This is a wonderful idea, this encourages all teachers, parents and children to read. Its very important that parents read to their children all the time, it obviously encourages going to your local library and picking up books and reading to your children every day" say pre-k teacher April Hogan. Proceeds from the Tea Party will benefit children's programs at the Heritage Center.
