Opening Doors for Children & Families

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I was pondering once again how great my job is.  Here at ABC Head Start Society I get to write all of the THANK YOU letters and cards.  What an awesome job!  I love handwriting cards and putting down my sincere thoughts and gratitude in writing.  And I tell ya, there is a lot to be thankful for when you are the Development & Stakeholder Relations Manager at ABC Head Start Society.  The community support we receive EVERY.  SINGLE.  DAY.  is truly touching.  

This week ALONE we received two gifts, one from Associated Engineering and one from University of...

A few of us ABC Head Start Society staff were at an event on Thursday.  We had the opportunity to chat with community members.  Some of the community members had never heard of our organization before, or some related ABC Head Start strictly to education.  As we discussed ABC Head Start Society, it was wonderful to be able to say "Oh but we are so much more than an education program."  ABC Head Start provides support and programming for the whole family.  The Head Start program is geared towards children ages 2 - 5 years old AND THEIR FAMILIES because we realize that that is where the big changes...

I'm BAAAACK!  For those of you who are faithful followers of all things ABC Head Start, you may remember THE BLOG.  For those of you who are new, WELCOME and I hope you will follow me in this journey where I share my love and passion for ABC Head Start all the while telling personal stories of my experiences and embarrassing my family.

Another school year is behind us. Another year of celebrating successes with children and families. Another year of learning. Another year taking us further down our journey and bringing new people in to join our journey. Every year I am so grateful to the families for opening their lives to ABC Head Start and entrusting us with their amazing little ones. It takes a leap of faith for parents to let go of their children into their first school experience, and I am always so honoured when they choose ABC Head Start to begin the journey.

A leap of faith is necessary. I envision the parents of ABC...

We have had a very busy couple of months at ABC Head Start. Our first annual Tapestry fundraiser was a HUGE success, and we can’t wait to do it all again next year.

I am not sure how it happened, but somehow the school year flew by and it is already mid-June! Activities at ABC Head Start sites are starting to wrap up as we approach summer holidays. One of my favourite days at ABC Head Start is Literacy Backpack Day. It is the day we celebrate the accomplishments of all of the ABC Head Start children and families and wish them well in their educational journey.

At ABC Head Start we know that by...
