Southeast Iowa Early Childhood Summit April 21, 2018

Southeast Iowa Early Childhood Summit was created to offer resources that will help support parents and childcare providers in their important roles they play in the lives of our children. We know it can be difficult to be a parent and/or a childcare provide – WE ARE HERE TO HELP!

Our focus for this year’s summit is literacy and poverty and the connection between them.

Join us for this year’s
FREE Bob Kann’s Family Show and Fair

Bob became a family performer because he loved the challenge of simultaneously entertaining children and adults. Growing up on Rocky and Bullwinkle, Bob was exposed to the wonders of presenting different kinds of humor in order to appeal to kids and grown-ups in the same audience.

In this great tradition, Bob performs for family audiences in community centers, performing arts centers, museums, nature centers, zoos, schools, libraries, and other venues where families are present.  He uses storytelling, magic, juggling and audience participation as vehicles for building community by making families laugh and play together.
