Lil Achievers Daycare on East Hwy. 10 was more than abuzz with little human activity Halloween night, as perhaps a hundred little gremlins, batmen and sweet princesses enjoyed an evening of fun.
Director Lori LeBrun, Asst. Director Kaitlen Forrow and their 23 assistants had the place decked out with all kinds of activities to attract the kids’ attention, with themes for each of their five classroom areas.
They had the Witches’ Lair, the Little Sensory Room, Bruce the Bug guy (wih real tarantulas and hissing African beetles, the Movie Room, the Haunted Playground and a game and crafts and arts room.
Kids and parents munched on tacos and all the trimming, topped off by a piece of Lil Achievers’ fifth anniversary cake.
Those who ventured out to trick or treat following the 8 p.m. close of the Achievers activities were given one of 500 glow

Highlight of the night - of course - was the highly competitive costume competition, which was broken down into four age groups: Under 2, Ages 2-3; Ages 4-5; and Ages 6 & Up. (See top three placing contestants in each category in adjacent photos.)
Lil Achievers has been at its location just east of On The Run convenience center since opening. They have 117 children enrolled in their daily activities, either as fulltime or part-time participants.
This was the second year in which Lil Achievers has had a Halloween party.
