Grants of $100 and in-kind grants of books valued at $500 to Vermont and New Hampshire child care providers, school-based programs, and community organizations for staff training related to the importance of books and stories for children ages 0-5. The goal of the program is to bring together early-childhood educators for discussions and training associated with literacy. Funding is intended for programs in Vermont or New Hampshire's Upper Valley that serve low-income or at-risk children.
CLiF recently completed a professionally produced 18-minute video designed to train staff members at home and center-based childcare facilities and Head Start programs about: 1) why it is critical to share books and stories with children as early and often as possible; and 2) ways to share books and stories successfully with children from birth to age 5.
After watching the video, providers can choose to fill out an online response. CLiF will send documentation of your learning time for use as needed for credentials or professional development.
