The Kaskaskia College Early Childhood Program recently held at Story Hour through the Centralia Regional Library Summer Reading Program at the Sandoval Library.
Participating children were from the Little Starr's Learning Center in Sandoval. The children were read two stories by Tina Suarez, Early Childhood Program Coordinator. The stories involved both fire safety and bike safety. After the stories were read, the children completed an art project about their favorite part of one of the books read. As the children were leaving they were given healthy snacks as a prize for their artwork.
The Early Childhood Education Program at Kaskaskia College is designed to provide students with an opportunity to prepare themselves for employment, to continue their education at an institution of higher learning, and to develop a more satisfactory philosophy of life.
Students completing the two-year early childhood program enter the profession assuming responsibility for the care and education of an individual group of young children in various settings such as a child care center, preschool, nonpublic school kindergarten, before-and/or after-school child care programs, or family day care homes.
