"On June 29, 2020, the Board of Directors for the Clinton Early Learning Center sent a communication to families and staff members outlining steps the CELC will take to fight racism in our community."
This blog post from raceconscious.org (which offered a training to CELC teachers in June 2019) takes a popular children’s book and shows how you can use it to talk about race and racism with a young child:
Choosing child care is an important decision. You can learn about choices in these short Child Care Options videos. Safe and positive child care sets the stage for healthy growth and development. It takes time, patience and understanding of what to look for when selecting child care. You know the needs of your child and family. However, you may need assistance in matching those needs to available resources. That is why OCFS is proud to share with you the supports that we have put in place to assist you in making this important decision.
The Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) is focused on promoting the social emotional development and school readiness of young children birth to age 5. CSEFEL is a national resource center funded by the Office of Head Start and Child Care Bureau for disseminating research and evidence-based practices to early childhood programs across the country.
