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.
