With our wonderful water filled summer behind us, August promises a lot of great enrichment activities.
Wonderful news! We are currently on the active waitlist for Quality First selection for this fiscal year (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016). Establishing environments and experiences for young children that support development is a central feature of this quality improvement program. Children need to have sufficient time to deeply engage with learning materials and other self-selected learning experiences. Research has demonstrated that having enough time and space to engage with the materials is important to optimizing children’s development. We will be furthering our knowledge of Child Health and Development, Early Learning, Strengthening Families, Early Childhood Systems Building, Early Literacy and Community Awareness by participating in Quality First.
