A monthly resource for early childhood professionals in the Miami Valley
October 15, 2019
Don't be afraid of technology...or mice!     
Special training at the Kroc Nov. 7    
Let's break down the walls and get comfortable with technology. Whether it's using a desktop computer, a laptop, a tablet or a smart phone, we all need a basic understanding of how to manage devices, apps, browsing the Internet, sending email and scanning documents. This demonstration workshop will give everyone the tools to get started and move into a place of confidence with technology.

Come out and attend this training at our Miami Valley office on Thursday, Nov. 7 from 6-8 p.m.!

Is your child care program a center where meals are served to children? If so, your program may be eligible to be reimbursed for the nutritious meals and snacks served.

As a sponsor of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), 4C for Children can help you ensure that the children in your care are receiving nutritious foods that promote health and educational readiness and that you receive monthly reimbursements for the food served.

If you are an administrator of a center-based program* and are interested in learning more, please click here and fill out an interest form.

*Programs must have an enrollment of at least 75% of children receiving publicly funded child care and cannot be listed on the National Disqualified List.
