What Our Scholars Say
“…I feel it is important to work hard to strive to get a better quality program, and we need the input from inside and outside (family & staff) to see how we can grow.”– COMPLETED “Utilizing Program
Observation and Evaluation”
“The roles we play section was an “ah-hah” for me. I knew that we make a difference & shape lives, but to see the different ways in more detail gave me a greater understanding & a broader range of how to help our children.”
~Completed, “Answering the Call”
“I learned a lot of new techniques that I will use in the future. For instance, using actual photos of a zebra or a puppy as opposed to cartoonish pictures. This allows children to distinguish differences between the two, because they are presented in real-life settings relative to their nature.”– COMPLETED “Get Bitten By the Photo Bug”
