A Chapel Hill group has received a two-year grant from the Park Foundation to help educate childcare providers.
The Child Care Services Association will use the money to expand its T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood Project. The project provides scholarships for childcare providers all over North Carolina to work towards credentials, associate or bachelor’s degrees in early childhood development. The association hopes to expand its program to other states in the next two years.
The charity also gave N.C. Representative Howard Hunter the James and Carolyn Hunt Early Childhood Award for his work as the chair of the legislature’s Committee on Children and Youth.
