Month of Young Child: Official Visit
April was National Month of the Young Child, a time to recognize the importance of early learning and early literacy, and to celebrate the teachers and policies that bring early childhood education to young children. Every year the Partnership hosts public awareness activities in Caswell as part of the Month of the Young Child celebration. Activities conducted during the month promote the needs of young children, their families, and the early childhood programs that serve them.
One of these activities is to invite a Caswell County elected official to visit a local licensed child care program.
This year, Caswell County Board of Commissioner Nate Hall visited the NC Pre-Kindergarten (NC Pre-K) classroom at Oakwood Elementary School in Yanceyville, NC. Mr. Hall read books to the children and talked with Lead Teacher Beth Griffin and Assistant Teacher Rhonda Thompson about the NC Pre-K and evidence based early literacy Raising a Reader programs, as well as other important issues surrounding early child development. Oakwood Elementary NC Pre-K’s classroom is one of five NC Pre-K sites in the County. The other classrooms are located at: Rainbow Educational Child Care Center, Caswell Community Head Start, North Elementary, and South Elementary. Each of these sites, except Caswell Community Head Start, also serves as a Raising A Reader site. Oakwood’s NC Pre-K classroom has a five star rating, which is the highest rating a licensed child care program can earn.
“All young children need and deserve high-quality early learning experiences that will prepare them for life, and Caswell County has a great opportunity to do our part to help young children,” said Sandra Hudspeth, Executive Director of the Caswell County Partnership for Children. Young children and their families depend on high-quality education and care, which help children get a great start and bring lasting benefits to Caswell County. The Caswell County Partnership for Children would like to thank Commissioner Hall for his visit and Oakwood Elementary for hosting the visit.
