December 10, 2014 Western Carolina Community Action (WCCA) has been selected as one of 234 preliminary winners of the Office of Head Start’s Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership grants. This was a nationwide grant competition to determine who could best provide high quality early childhood services in partnership with existing child care centers. WCCA was the only organization in North Carolina west of Charlotte to receive the grant.
WCCA met earlier this year with child care providers in Henderson, Polk, Rutherford, and Transylvania Counties to gather support for the grant and determine potential partners. The agency also collected letters of support from many educational, health, and human service organizations in the service area.
The grant will allow WCCA and its partners to serve an additional 100 at risk infants and toddlers each year for the next five years. The program will be funded at approximately 1.5 million dollars annually. Some of the goals of the program are listed below:
WCCA currently serves over 560 children with high quality early childhood programs including Head Start, Early Head Start, NC Pre-K, and childcare subsidy wrap-around service.
- Increase education levels for teachers working with at risk infants and toddlers
- Insure high quality learning environments for at risk children in child care
- Expand the number of at risk infants and toddlers receiving high quality early childhood services before they reach kindergarten
