Garfield Concludes Six-Week Early Learning Academy

At Garfield Elementary, twenty-one families recently completed a six-week “Born Learning Academy,” sponsored by United Way of the Quad Cities Women’s Leadership Council. Garfield kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Lisa Pearson and Ms. Kari Thomas, led the sessions where parents learned about parental engagement, nutrition, health, brain development, and other important topics related to early childhood learning. Free child care and a family meal was included at each session. Upon completing the six week course, parents were awarded a free tablet loaded with age appropriate software, courtesy of the Women’s Leadership Council.
