VWECC Receives Grant for Books

Posted On: Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Mrs. Foster's class show off several of the books purchased through the recent grant the ECC received

Van Wert Early Childhood Center recently received a $200 grant from The Ohio Federation of Teachers which allowed them to purchase books through First Books, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to get books into children’s hands. Jeff Hood, Van Wert Federation of Teachers President, contacted Jen Arend, VWECC Literacy Coach, when he heard of this opportunity. Through their collaboration, they were able to purchase 78 books for ECC students to share throughout their classrooms.

VWECC implements the Literacy Collaborative model to ensure all students become literate while preparing them for college and career. Part of the Literacy Collaboration initiative is to build classroom libraries full of high-quality books that children can access daily.
