Kearney Public Schools looking to improve more childcare centers
KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) - Kearney Public Schools working to create better childcare centers in their community.
The district is receiving grants from the Sixpence Early Learning Fund to improve the quality of childcare facilities.
KPS has two coaches who assist three different centers in the community while working with teachers and providing any additional educational materials they may need.
Early Learning Center Sonshine World has been partnering with KPS for the past six years now, and Kassi Richards, assistant director of Sonshine World said, their relationship with KPS had made some positive impacts on their facility.
“It’s definitely brought us a long way. When we first started, toys were all in cupboards, there was really nothing out… not much on the walls… partnering with them… has just really expanded our… ability to teach little minds,” said Richards.
KPS is also looking for other child care centers to take part in this early learning program. Centers who are interested are encouraged to reach out by sending an email to CCP@KearneyCats.com.
