Thanks to a federal grant, our ECEAP preschool centers were able to build school gardens this year to educate students and provide nutritious fruits and veggies! We are looking for volunteers to help us keep these beautiful gardens going during the summer months by volunteering time to water, weed, and add soil to the garden beds. This is a great opportunity to get outside while helping kids and families in our community.

Join us on Wednesdays and Fridays at Shelton Early Learning Center in Mason County. This is a kid friendly event, so bring your kiddos. The schedule for this event is below. A staff person will be available at the garden to assist you.

Mission Statement

To promote and nurture early learning communities where families and children thrive.

Description

The Child Care Action Council was founded in 1987 by a group of parents, child care professionals, employers, school & government representatives and other community members concerned about the inadequacies of our community's child care system.
