For more than 30 years, North Bay Children’s Center has provided affordable childcare, early education and safety net services for thousands of families struggling to provide the best start for their children. This school year, increased classroom capacity and hours of operations will afford more working parents access to full-day childcare. NBCC will also welcome 34 new teachers and expand toddler care services.
Additionally, NBCC’s Bright Futures project, which will create a North Bay learning lLab for training teachers, parents and school administrators will break ground this fall. Trained teachers will be able to integrate NBCC’s core competencies such as “Raising a Reader” and Garden of Eatin’ nutrition education into their daily lessons. The lab will also provide much-needed space for NBCC to enhance these key determinants of student success.
“After seven years of planning, permitting and fundraising we’ve reached the moment we’ve all been waiting for,” said Susan Gilmore, president and CEO of North Bay Children’s Center.
“As our nation focuses on economic recovery and getting parents back to work, it’s important to remember that programs like ours are an integral part of our nation’s fabric, continuing to support the current workforce as well as prepare our future workforce for success. Our Bright Futures project will double our capacity and ensure that NBCC will always be there for our North Bay families, and enable us to continue as a model for best practices in early care and education.”
