The Ahlquist Agenda - Episode 6

Need a good listen while traveling for the holidays?

In the latest episode of the Ahlquist Agenda, we talk about the importance of the early care and education system: how it impacts the economy, and what Illinois and the federal government are doing to make it more accessible and affordable. We’re also joined by members of We, The Village IL, a group working to make the early education and care system better for Illinois families.

Listen at the link below or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts!

The Ahlquist Agenda - Episode 6 The Ahlquist Center advocates for equitable policies and social supports that create social capital.

We are so grateful for YOU - all of our families! For your trust in us and your partnership as we care for and educate your child(ren). What are you grateful for this year?

Math is all around us and the more we practice at home the more fun children have with it! Math skills can be learned doing every day activities! Check it out!

✨ Monday provocation ✨

Learning number names and repeating the sequence of number names to 10 (and eventually to 20 and more) is important mathematics learning. This prepares children to talk about quantities. Children learn to say the sequence of number names from 1 to 10, and eventually to 20 and beyond.

Encourage children to use number words and practice the sequence of number words. Connecting these words to the quantities they represent deepens children’s learning.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month 10/29/2021

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

At Children's Home and Aid, we believe the most important asset for child and youth wellbeing is the family.

As we close Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we stand in cooperation with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence by sharing our available resources for families affected by violence.

We stand in solidarity with all victims of domestic violence and recognize our staff and other allies who do whatever it takes to support individuals and strengthen families.

The Eagle Room preschoolers were so engaged the other day! So many skills are being learned while playing. Science happens when they explore tree bark, and fine motor skills are strengthened while playing with sand and marbles. The art experience that day was water color painting.
