What's New

Thank you to all who attended & supported our Fall Benefit Auction!!!

Attention Child Care Providers... Your opinion is important to us! To provide the best services possible, we need input from you and all early childhood educators and advocates about the professional needs in your community. Please take five minutes and let us know what Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas is doing well and where we need to improve.  Please have each staff member at your facility complete a survey. We will use the results of this survey as we plan future professional development events and services. All respondents who complete the survey and share their contact information by November 14, 2014, will be entered in a drawing for prizes!

Attention Child Care Providers… Have you ever had an idea and wanted to be able to talk it through with a peer? Are you currently facing a leadership challenge in your career? The Center for Early Childhood Leadership and Professional Development Mentor Program is here to help!

Click here to complete a short survey to see if having a mentor might be a good fit for you. Once you submit the completed survey and are accepted into the program, you will be given the names and credentials of early childhood professionals from eastern Kansas who have made the commitment to share their time and talents with other providers. You will be able to choose a mentor you think will be most helpful to you. If you have questions or would like more information, contact Michelle at 785-440-4524 or michelle@east.ks.childcareaware.org. Space is limited.
