Shown above are Kristen Hartz-McCleery of the D&E Counseling Center, and Wally, a child-sized puppet, teaching preschoolers at Easter Seals in Youngstown. She is assisted by DeLynn Logan of PNC Bank.

The program is one of several offered by the center’s UPSTREAM Early Child Services designed to help children ages 2 to 8 grow resiliency and emotional health.
