Keep Young Children Safe in the Car
Attendance in preschool and the early grades greatly impacts young children’s learning and development. Young children are forming habits that may last well into their elementary school years. The IEL Project has developed a Preschool Attendance Tool Kit that teachers may use to encourage young children’s attendance. Check out the ideas for winter break to encourage families to have their children return to preschool after the holidays.
