Kelly is a CG&FS staff member who works with AMHA in the Early Childhood Initiative (ECI).
She is shown at right creating holiday decorations with children in the AMHA program. She worked with toddlers and preschoolers at four AMHA development ECI events in November to design and craft snowflakes to reflect the idea that “children are special and unique like snowflakes,” according to CG&FS officials.
She decorated the AMHA entryways with the snowflakes and ECI logo on the doors and has received inquiries about the program from incoming residents for this program because of the display, according to CGFS officials.
AMHA’s ECI program offers early care and education to 3,000 children younger than 5 — with nearly 10 percent of the county’s children in this age group. Its goal is to connect families to build trusting relationships and empower parents to be their child’s first and most important teacher, according the CG&FS officials. ECI also links families to community resources and offers monthly educational family events in selected AMHA developments, such as the Mom-ME Time and Parents as Teachers™ programs.
Kelly provides home visits to assist with preschool and kindergarten readiness by way of screening assessments, referrals, educational activities and support to families. She has a degree in education from Walsh University.
