Early learning Neighborhood Collaborative launched The Little Lights Infant Toddler Program.
This new program will provide services to approximately 16 children. Children are accepted into the program through a priority-based system designed to ensure opportunities for quality early care and education are accessible and available for families with high needs. The program is in partnership with The Other Way Ministries. Resources supporting Little Lights came primarily from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
The opening of Little Lights fulfills a goal of Early Learning Neighborhood Collaborative “Where all children, regardless of the neighborhood in which they live, are able to thrive developmentally and educationally allowing them to fully embrace their God-given potential and become self-sufficient adults.”
The Early Leaning Neighborhood Collaborative is a non-profit collaborative focused on providing early childhood education to families in Grand Rapids most vulnerable neighborhoods.
