“With a head start in their education, the Mayberry Park ‘Tiny Tots' Class of 2009 are graduating with a set of skills to aid them in kindergarten--this graduation ceremony is the first of many in their lives,” said Molina. “I am proud of our County Parks and Recreation Department’s Tiny Tots program, which provides every student with basics such as socialization, language development, and the use of motor skills.“
Following the walk to the stage for their certificates, the “Tiny Tots” students will perform some of their favorite songs for friends and family.
“Sharing, caring, and learning in a fun way have been the keys to the program’s success,” said Mayberry Park Tiny Tots’ Program Coordinator Mary Hernandez. “I anticipate a day of fun, smiles and laughter at the ceremonies.”
