The Family Day of Play lived up to its name Saturday by offering plenty of chances for kids to have fun while their parents collected information and tips from more than two dozen organizations at Hubble Middle School in Warrenville.

The annual event is sponsored by the Wheaton Warrenville Early Childhood Collaborative, which partners with Metropolitan Family Services DuPage to celebrate the importance of early learning and play as vital components in children’s development.

All sorts of agencies participated, including the Wheaton police and fire departments, the DuPage Children’s Museum and Wheaton Public Library.

Easter Seals DuPage and Fox Valley offered scavenger hunts, the Wheaton Lions Club provided vision and hearing screenings, and health educators were on hand to offer medical and dental tips.

The event was funded through a grant provided by the DuPage Foundation, local sponsors and the DuPage Association for the Education of Young Children.
