"Math is Cool in After School" will provide after school programs with training and materials to enhance the math experiences of the students they serve. Ten to fifteen after school programs will participate in a series of workshops designed to make math concepts understandable and integrate math learning/activities throughout the day. This exciting new project is funded by the TD Bank Foundation. Westchester’s after school programs not only support working parents but also expand and strengthen children’s learning beyond the regular school day. We thank the TD Bank Foundation for its leadership in this area.
A new grant from the Westchester Community Foundation will expand and deepen the Council's advocacy activities. The award will support a report on Westchester employers’ child care needs and concerns, new infographics on the scope and cost of Westchester child care and training for child care/after school board leaders on advocacy for safe, affordable, quality child care. The Council is grateful to the Foundation for understanding the critical importance of advocacy to our work at a time when there has never been greater recognition of the importance of the early years but resources remain limited.
We exceeded our #GivingTuesday goal!
Thanks to you, we're going to create at least SIX (!) scholarships for Westchester families to get quality early care and education for their kids.
Every milestone they meet as children and each accomplishment as adults will have its roots in your generosity.
