Will the Real President Lincoln Raise Your Hand?Print This Post
Cynthia Rogers’ class at GreenTree Learning Center learned about our Nation’s presidents in the days leading up to Presidents’ Day. Here they’re learning what it’s like to walk in Abraham Lincoln’s shoes—or rather—stovepipe hat.
“Early learning strategies in our community have been a top focus since the early years of our Collaborative,” said Lisa Kingry, Turner Family Connection coordinator. “Our parents, teachers, and community members recognize the importance of the work we do with families of young children birth through age 5 and the impact it has on school readiness, student achievement, and eventually high-school graduation.”
The Turner County Collaborative, in partnership with Communities In Schools of Turner County, operates a Child Development Center, provides parent educators to implement the home visitation program, Parents As Teachers, sponsors parent workshops and networks with other agencies who serve young children.
“Our Collaborative has consistently supported, or provided, some type of early learning strategy for more than 20 years,” said Kingry. “Our Early Learning strategy is truly a collaborative effort.”
