“KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON” was the focus of the 2014 Piney Woods Child Care Annual Conference held on Jan. 25. The conference was sponsored by an area cluster of Texas A&M AgriLife County Extension Agents/Family & Consumer Sciences in the Northeast Texas area. Topics discussed included Brain Gym, arts and crafts, keeping children safe and licensing updates.
