Navarro County Early Childhood Coalition Celebrates Childcare Professionals

From Staff Reports

Starting Monday, childcare workers, who usually have their hands full, will have someone looking after *them* for a short while. During the week of Tuesday Nov. 16, the Navarro County Early Childhood Coalition County Early Childhood Coalition will celebrate childcare workers by providing “goodie bags” and boxed lunches. The Honorable H.M. Davenport will issue a proclamation for Childcare Professionals Appreciation Week.  

The Coalition also plans a free training on developmental milestones, with one Continuing Education hour for childcare staff, presented on Tuesday evening by Faith Rivera of Help Me Grow North Texas. To register, call the Coalition’s co-chair, Rachel Gillespie of Presbyterian Children’s Home and Services, at 903-229-4853 or email her at Rachel.Gillespie@pchas.org.  

“On Monday we will have a crafting event on Facebook Live,” Gillespie adds, “and later in the week there’s a drawing for prizes. We want to support these childcare workers who are always working to improve children’s safety, health and school readiness.”  

The Navarro County Early Childhood Coalition holds monthly meetings (virtually) for teachers, school counselors, childcare workers, nonprofit employees and local officials. More information about the Coalition is available at www.NavarroCountyEarly.org
