The Menlo Children's Center
staff attended the California Association for the Education of Young Children Conference
in Sacramento on March 6 & 7, 2015. The theme of this year’s conference was Early Care & Education at the Crossroads. Each staff member attended workshops that addressed classroom curriculum enhancement, special needs awareness, and advocacy in the child development field. They returned to Menlo Park with great ideas and incentives to enhance their classrooms and the childcare center as a whole. They were also able to connect with local programs to become more involved with early childhood events throughout the Peninsula. The MCC Parent Action Committee helped make this training trip possible through a $1,000 contribution, which covered 90% of the lodging needed for 12 staff members to attend the 2-day conference.
