We would like to congratulate our Educare parents that attended a 10-week parent curriculum developed by parents, for parents. It encompasses early childhood education from birth to five years old and gives parents tools and skills they can use everyday with their children. Weekly sessions vary from about 1hr to an hour and a half and each week there is a different topic and "dicho" (saying) that we discuss as a whole. AP/OD gives parents a safe space to share their past experiences and what they have learned and also what hopes they have for the future of their children.
Educare West Dupage is thankful for the toy donation provided by Toys for Tots to our Educare families. Since 1947, Toys for Tots, which is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas.
