Seeking Quality Child Care VISTA – Could it be you?
School readiness begins at birth! The Quality Child Care Division at Opportunity Council raises awareness about the vital role that child care providers play in ensuring healthy emotional and physical development, early intervention for suspected developmental delays, and high-quality early learning. Ninety-percent of a child’s brain develops by age five, and early experiences impact every aspect of a child’s life.
Based in Bellingham, the VISTA Member will build on initiatives in Whatcom, Skagit, San Juan, Island, and Snohomish counties. The goal is to increase access to high quality child care for families with low incomes in NW Washington through community partnerships, training, and strategic programming. The Opportunity Council VISTA Cohort in Bellingham includes monthly team meetings, Professional Development opportunities, fun team-building events, and four annual Days of Service.
