“Books, Balls and Blocks,” Niagara University’s popular children’s educational program, is back this spring and will be offered in several Niagara County locations during the month of April.

Funded by the United Way of Greater Niagara, this free program will provide hands-on, spring-themed games, art activities, and interactive stories for children between the ages of 4 months and 6 years. Children will receive a book, ball, and blocks, and their parents will be provided with fun activities to do at home. Developmental screenings will be offered, and pizza and refreshments will be provided.
