The AAUW Mount Vernon Branch has selected the UCM Early Learning Center as one of its focus causes for 2017. At its Holiday Brunch meeting in December, AAUW members brought a book or art supplies to donate for the children and families at the Center.
"On behalf of all of us at the UCM Early Learning Center, thank you so much to the AAUW members for the very thoughtful gifts of the new picture books, art supplies, area rugs, and handmade afghans for our students," says Torria Baker, Director of the UCM Early Learning Center. "Exploring and creating with art materials is an important part of The Creative Curriculum (R) that we use in all our classrooms. Young children who engage in expressive art activities gain a sense of accomplishment and grow in their autonomy, a critical part of their social and emotional development.”
"I hope many of the members – and other community members -- will come visit our Center soon, to take a tour and meet our students and teachers. And maybe even read a book or too with us!"
