What is WordUP?

WordUP was developed in 2014 to increase awareness of a child's need to hear 21,000 words a day to be prepared for kindergarten.

These events, held all around the community, include fun literacy and sensory activities for children under 5 and their parents or caregivers. 

 

 

Current WordUP Event Locations:

  • Life and Family Services (Park Drive, Kendallville): First Wednesday of each month at 10:30 a.m.
  • Carriage House Apartments (Ashton Drive, Kendallville): Third Wednesday of each month at 2:00 p.m.
