Here is just another example of how our Early Care and Education Child Care "1-2-3 Grow and Learn" Program is meeting the needs of both students and parents. Students enjoy when visiting authors join in on their virtual learning. This parent said, "1-2-3 Grow and Learn has really been a lifesaver for us as a way of preparing our daughter for kindergarten. We do a lot of the suggested activities (and a lot of other school prep) but having the class to look forward to has just been everything to her this school year." #123growandlearn #virtuallearning #earlylearning #feelgoodfriday
