This Kentucky classroom has no computers, toys or walls. Instead, students are surrounded by an abundance of oak and maple trees and a bubbling creek. In the spring, butterflies and honey bees are their constant companions.
On a cold day in early winter, a woodpecker chatters away on an old tree branch overhead and nearby, the soft crunching sound of squirrels can be heard bounding through fallen dried leaves.
You might not know it, but you're in the middle of a classroom.
HARTFORD FOUNDATION’S EARLY CHILDHOOD COLLABORATIVE
Our team works to align services, practices, policies, and resources at the local, regional, and state levels. Commitment, care, and support for children and families must happen at all of these levels in order to build and sustain a quality early childhood system.
