Child Care Network Receives a Grant from the Target Foundation

SACCN receives Target Foundation GrantThe Southern Adirondack Child Care Network has received funding from the Target Foundation.  The funds will be used toward our Literacy in Child Care Coaching Program for family child care providers.  The program specifically addresses school readiness in children by getting good children’s books in the hands of young children in child care.  The child care providers will be coached in how to use books to both build and enhance their current curriculum to benefit each individual child.

By giving children increased access to books and other early literacy opportunities and developing curriculum and educational activities around stories children will have a rich introduction to reading which will increase their reading proficiency and help get them ready to enter school ready to learn.  Child care providers will benefit from having our early childhood specialists demonstrate rich ways to use books to encourage reading.
