April is the time each year that Kids Learning Place centers celebrate “Week of the Young Child” by planning special activities along with recognizing and re-committing to the goal of improving early learning in the lives of our children and their families.

Kids Learning Place uses this week of April 13 - 18 as a way to focus the public’s attention on young children and their families and the importance of early learning opportunities. Children’s education must be a high priority; we must do more to ensure that there are opportunities for every child to experience early education environments – in their home, school, child care and in every community – we must see that all children succeed.

EVERYONE can make a difference in small ways that could have an inspiring effect on children in great ways; share your interests, culture, or talents in a classroom or volunteer to read with children. We encourage community members to become involved in programs that support young children during this important time in their lives of becoming lifelong learners.

At Kids Learning Place we design the early education programs to promote school readiness by providing high-quality learning experiences. We do this by requiring teachers with degrees in every classroom, using a research based curriculum, and encouraging parent participation. Council on Rural Services and Kids Learning Place also want to also take this time to recognize our early education staff who significantly contributes to the quality of services we provide to our families. Their commitment, vision, and enthusiasm with children and families push the program to its highest levels.

We are also proud that the Kids Learning Place Head Start and Child Care centers in all eight of our counties participate in the “Step Up To Quality” program from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. The program recognizes local early education sites that exceed licensing standards in education, staff training, and staff qualifications. Our centers are the highest rated programs in five of our eight counties.

Early childhood education is vital to our communities. Because of this, school readiness and the well-being of each child is the primary goal for Kids Learning Place. We believe building partnerships builds strong children, strong families, strong communities and most important - opportunities for children to succeed in school and life.

Kids Learning Place centers are always actively recruiting children to attend the Head Start preschool program. Call our local toll free number today for more information at 1-866-627-4557 or call your local centers to find out what activities they are doing with the children to celebrate and become part of the celebration too!

Kids Learning Place is owned and operated by the Council on Rural Services that provides education, support, and volunteer services through their programs. For more information check the web at www.councilonruralservices.org.
