Thurston Early Childhood Coalition

Advancing the success of all children in Thurston County through age 8

Family FUN! Events

Thurston Early Childhood Coalition has been hosting Family Fun! Events in some format for the past 5 years.

These events showcase the partnerships created and sustained through collaboration with the valuable resources throughout our county.

At least once a season, agencies will gather at a venue, often a school, and provide Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math concepts in a family friendly, play based activity. Engaging children of all ages is only one component of these events. Each agency will also reach out to families to inform them of the resources they have available to provide, many which are free or low-cost.

Every event and all activities are FREE. A meal will be provided for all attendees and often you will leave with an assortment of takeaways, art projects or books.

The Family Fun! Events take place all around the greater Olympia area and all children 0-8 and their families are invited to every one. Many of the same agencies are represented at each event, yet the activities change.

If your venue is interested in hosting an event, or you are an agency looking to connect with families though providing a fun STEAM themed activity, please email the Coordinator Aubrey at or check out and event and let us know in person!

If you have any questions, please let us know!
