Posted on August 18, 2016 |

ADDISON COUNTY—At Mary Johnson Children’s Center in Middlebury, 60 youngsters are enrolled in the center’s upcoming session. About 50 percent of those children’s families qualify for the Child Care Financial Assistance Program, which recently received an additional $1 million in state funding.

MIDDLEBURY — In Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater on a recent Friday morning, Anders Bright and Lana Meyer crouched, one nestled against the other, on the floor. Intertwining their hands, they experimented with waves, clasping and twisting their hands in search for the most unsettling effect that would do justice to the Cheshire Cat.

If it can be wrapped in dough and fried, Emily Miner has probably already done it.

“We try everything, and if it blows up in the fryer, we just take it out real quick,” she said during a short break at Field Days last week.
