Sen. Bob Casey Visits Early Connections
U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-PA met with parents and educators at Early Connections in Erie to talk about the need for affordable, quality childcare. His stop was one in a series of visits to child care centers across the state to discuss two proposed bills: the Child Care for Workings Families Act of 2019, which he co-sponsored, and the Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit Enhancement Act. Both pieces of legislation would make it easier for working families to afford child care and would increase access to child care for more children.
2017-2018 Annual Report
The Year in Review
Each day, when directors, teachers, and staff walk into Early Connections’ centers, we look forward to the day because we know we will watch wonderful things happen. Some days will be noisy and messy, and others will be quieter and maybe even tidy! The children in our classrooms will make friends, they will negotiate, they will ask questions, they will grow, they will learn something new, they will discover something that interests them. We are here to guide children on that journey, to help them succeed and be excited by what they are learning.
In this report, we focus on Early Connections’ work and activities throughout the 2017-2018 fiscal year, not only within our organization but in cooperation with families, friends, and our community. We pledge to continue our commitment to support young children and their families through leadership, advocacy, and quality programs in early childhood education!
Thank you for your interest in Early Connections!
Here are some pics from yesterday’s field trip to visit the Erie Bayhawks. It was lots of fun. We got to read books, try on actual jerseys, tour the building, touch a real basketball hoop and take lots of pics. Had a blast, can’t wait to see them again in January!!!
Arthur’s Thanksgiving was a great choice of books to read to the preschool children at City Center last week. They enjoyed having Aubrea Haynes from the Erie County Clerk’s office share the story of Arthur’s dilemma of who will play the part of the turkey in the school play.
Llama Llama Red Pajama
Preschool children at City Center were delighted to have Kim Thomas, Northwest Regional Director, DCED, read Llama Llama Red Pajama to them. We hope she will visit us again soon!
