The Child Watch Program has started operations at the McCreary Community Building, with four-day-a-week services offered from 4-8 p.m.
Directors Terra Webb and Lori Lambert lead the service, which started Monday and has already supervised a number of youngsters. Adults may leave their children, aged 6 weeks to 8 years, in the care of Webb and Lambert for up to 90 minutes, which facilitates the adults’ exercise needs and provides a safe and engaging diversion for the children.
“We saw the need for this service and stepped in to fill it,” said Webb, a veteran educator with more than 15 years in Perry classrooms.
