There will be refreshments, program information, and tours of the new space, which features a play space for facilitated playgroups, a family-friendly Early Learning Resource Center, remote workstations, and a small space for training.
“For the last decade the Iredell County Partnership for Young Children has been without an office in the Mooresville area, making it difficult for parents and early childhood educators in the southern part of the county to access services,” said Executive Director Lisa Familo. “The effort to re-establish a presence in Mooresville has been a top priority, and we are grateful to be able to expand our footprint with a second location to better meet the needs of our community.
