In the Spotlight
This month, learn more about the Cleveland Head Start Center. Teachers, parents and several community volunteers came together to transform the center's outdoor play space into an extension of their classroom. Now they are able to teach about gardening, healthy active play, and gross motor activities in ways that their previous space did not allow. Kudos to the play space team!
