Now in its 30th year, the Children's Expo is a parent's treasure trove for informational, educational, and recreational resources for school-age children! The Bloomington/Monroe County Convention Center is the new headquarters for the huge expo hall, which brings together child care providers, sports league coordinators, summer camp directors, education program leaders, health care providers, and many more to answer questions and become the go-to resource for healthy, active families.

Children's Expo is the kickoff event for the Week of the Young Child. For more information and a schedule for the Week of the Child, contact or visit the Week of the Young Child Web site.

Free Health Screenings at Children's Expo
