Carol commented on Early Childhood Health Outdoors (ECHO)

Hi Sarah,
Children and outdoors - so important! Have you hard of the Tiny Trees program in Washington state? It would be ideal if every early childhood program had an acre of outdoor space to devote to excellent outdoor play. One barrier to improving outdoor spaces is different ideas of safety. Another that we run into most often is cost. Have you run across either of these in your work so far?
In any case, best of luck!
Carol

Hi Severine,
I looked at a few of the videos, skeptically I confess, and was happily impressed! I like that they are targeted to parents and families, focused on one specific practice and are short and to the point. How easy has it been for families to access these? Might these be available as an app with a directory of parenting problems (picky eaters, how to get my children to help clean up, etc). We are an early childhood education program located in the Silicon Valley community of California. I think some of our families might be interested in and benefit from such an app.
In any case, great to see this. Good luck!

Carol commented on Early Childhood Education Choices for All

Wow~ Thank you, Iliriana. That is quite an honor, considering the high level of submissions here. We just submitted our application for NAEYC accreditation. Now, I'm waiting to hear back from the school district about additional space. We have a waiting list and a lot of families needing high quality care and education for their infants and toddlers while they are at work.
Again, thank you very much for your support.
