Reaching Out to Our Children - Celebrate Child Care Givers Appreciation Week & 2010 Professional Leadership Conference

Promoting healthy behaviors and teacher quality are essential for our children to receive the quality education that they deserve. Employing innovative instructional strategies can empower our children to be engaging learners in an environment that authentically promotes cultural diversity, healthy living, and academic excellence.

Moreover, to have a brighter future in this world, we must start from the foundation. We must start from the early childhood years to foster our young children to succeed in life. As such, the Guam Child Care Givers Association will be holding its annual Professional Leadership Conference in celebration of Caregiver's Week. Please see the details below.
