Anyone who provides childcare or preschool, including home-based, is invited to a roundtable session hosted by the Scott County Community Foundation?s Early Childhood Committee. The first session in the ?Stepping Stone Series? is ?Refresh and Renew.? The session will be held Tuesday, March 15 at 7 p.m. at the Lifelong Learning Center. Participants will have the opportunity to network with others in the field while learning about topics related to early childhood education. Refreshments will be served, and door prizes will be given. There is no cost to attend, but providers are asked to RSVP at 812-752-2057 or email by Friday, March 11.

The Early Childhood Committee has been in existence since 2014 and works to identify issues and solutions for our young learners and their families. The Committee has hosted roundtable sessions, family literacy events, and promotes the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, among many other activities. Members are currently working on a childcare and preschool resource guide. Anyone who has not received requests for information but would like to be included in the guide or the roundtable email distribution list should contact Jaime Toppe at the Community Foundation through the information listed above.
