Quality Early Learning Experiences
Posted on 11/16/2015
Community Resources for Children is honored to be part of the Napa Valley Early Learning Initiative (NVELI), which is funded by the Napa Valley Vintners. The initiative focuses on early learning and kindergarten preparedness to reduce the achievement gap between English fluent students and English language learning students.

Two of our programs that are funded by the initiative are Active Minds, which supports family strengthening, and Pathways to Quality, which supports provider quality. With the funding we received, we were able to:
• Support parents to engage their young children in home based learning experiences with an emphasis on literacy
• Provide early learning experiences for children and their parents
• Increase professional development of teachers and competency working with dual language learning children
• Support 26 early learning professionals in providing a quality early learning environment
