FITNESS AND NUTRITION EDUCATION
Wage The Difference
In 2016 it was reported by the Washington Post "half of America's childcare workers need food stamps, welfare payments or Medicaid", with very little changing today. As an effort to support recruitment and retention in ECE we recognize food insecurity and wellness can be barriers to you maintaining sustainable employment. With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Contact us to learn more about our Farm to ECE and KeyFit Programs as a commitment to this cause.
Play To Learn Foster Parent Initiative
The PlayThings project provides on-site make and take projects and mailed monthly activity boxes to Foster Parents. The goal is to promote great opportunities for you as a practitioner to access quality play to learn materials. You may use these to implement practices with the children you serve. The Early Education Career Institute recognizes with access to the right resources, as a community of practitioners you become empowered by your abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill your potential as educational coaches to children you serve.
