‘I love coming to see Miss Alex each day. She is my new favorite teacher’
William said his teacher, Miss Alex, used to be sad and cranky every day, and now she’s not. He looks forward to going to her class each day. Miss Alex is more engaged and interactive with the children, helping them reach their fullest potential, after receiving professional development training from Child Care Aware of Missouri.
We strive to make sure that every child gains the skills they need to achieve their full potential. Our work focuses on strengthening families, child care programs, businesses, and the community.
With your generous donation, we can provide support and training to child care professionals who care for our youngest children.
CHILDREN ARE BORN READY TO LEARN
How a child’s brain grows is strongly affected by the child’s experiences with other people and their environment. Trained and supported educators positively affect children’s brain development and give them the best possible start, leading to future success.
Give STL Day, is an annual giving movement connecting donors and dollars to nonprofits and their funding needs powered by the St. Louis Community Foundation.
This past May, Child Care Aware® of Missouri participated in Give STL day by hosting virtual events through our social media pages. We are so grateful to all our supporters for helping us raise nearly $7,000! With your support, we are able to continue to support child care educators and help them access resources, professional development opportunities, leadership training, and additional knowledge to help enhance their interaction with children and their families. For every $50 Child Care Aware® of Missouri receives, we impact 103 individuals: 7 families and 5 providers directly, and 91 children indirectly.
Check back next year for more information on how to get involved for Give STL Day 2022.
Each year, Child Care Aware® of Missouri hosts an annual walk that helps us continue to deliver services focusing on the improvement of a child’s experiences and environment in their first two-thousand days. With your support, we can help make a difference in the lives of Missouri’s children, families, and early childhood educators!
This past September, Child Care Aware® of Missouri hosted the second annual walk! We are so grateful for all our sponsors and participants that helped make this event a success. With support from individuals and companies like you, we were able to raise $6,000 for Missouri’s early childhood community.
