Pretend City is Turning Three!

Pretend City is turning THREE!!!!
To celebrate they want children to explore what they want to be when they grow up.
A firefighter, dentist, chef, doctor, dancer, athlete…
have you asked your child what they want to be when they grow up? 
Right now I have an artist/painter and a scientist that learns about animals.
I love it!
As children become more aware of the world around them and all that is available to them, 
they are able to explore, create and discover in a way that prepares them for a successful future.   
I hope you'll join Pretend City for this very special “When I Grow Up Day” and celebrate its birthday and welcome special guests from our community including police officers, firefighters, dancers, doctors, beekeepers, lifeguards, chefs and more!
