We are proud and excited to share photos from our CHILD Center ground breaking ceremony! Our community is pulling together to impact children and their families in life changing ways by providing quality early learning supports for children. Our CHILD Center partners include the UF Anita Zucker Center for Excellence in Early Childhood Studies and O2B Kids, as well as many other wonderful community partners. The professional development for child care providers and best practices developed at the CHILD Center will be shared across the county in collaboration with the Early Learning Coalition of Alachua County. Many thanks to our partners that made the ground breaking a success, including Partnership for Strong Families, Alachua County Sheriff, UF Anita Zucker Center for Excellence in Early Childhood Studies, O2B Kids, Charles Perry Partners, Inc., Call to Action Gainesville, Alachua County, our SWAG Board and members, and a special thanks to Eric Drummond and CPPI, our construction manager for soon making the building a reality!
