School Age is the Cool Age!

Have you ever worked with school-aged children in a before or after school program and wondered why the children didn't do what you asked them to? I work with child care centers and we are always looking at ways to support children and teachers, so I am going to give you a few ideas or reminders to help.
24:1 Early Childhood Learning Center

Thursday, July 26 was a joyful evening as 4 of the little graduates attend the 24:1 Early Childhood Learning Center Graduation Ceremony. The parents and extended families were thrilled to see their children decked out in their caps and gowns. The excitement didn’t stop there, the families viewed a slide show of the children activities that were done throughout the year and pictures of their children playing and learning in the classroom.

There's still time for you be prepared for those minor cuts and scrapes that our little ones may encounter through our Adult and Infant CPR and Adult and Pediatric First Aid training.

Career Development

As adults we realize the real future lies in the hands of our children. Our first priority should be the nurturing and educating of America's youth. At United 4 Children, w e are improving the skills of the teachers who are influencing the lives of 1000’s of children. Our Affiliation Program ensure that early childhood development and youth program educators and administrators have the knowledge needed to support the whole child well-being.
