Save the Children is an organization that has been in the United States since 1932 when it was founded in Harlan. Recently, Middlesboro School District received a grant from Save the Children to hire an Early Childhood Coordinator and a Kindergarten Readiness Ambassador. The Early Childhood Coordinator, Allison Hamlin, will work with expectant mothers and children up to age three who enroll in their program. In her program she will cultivate positive parent-child relationships to create an environment that the child will be able to become kindergarten ready. Allison will also perform bimonthly home visits to provide learning resources to her families. The Kindergarten Readiness Ambassador, Stacelyn Womack, (left) will work with families who have children from ages 3-5. In her program she will focus on literary, math, and social skills that will ensure the children are ready for kindergarten. She will partner with the parents in weekly group meetings and provide resources that can be used throughout their daily routines to keep learning environments growing.
