When Day One Teaching & Learning Center opens in January 2022, we will welcome volunteers who can come in and read to the children. We hope you will sign up! In the meantime, we are creating a library of stories being read aloud by people in our community (and beyond!). If you would like to send us a story, please email us and we will provide you the instructions for sending us the file. Enjoy our online storytime!

Day One Early Learning Community is dedicated to creating the best learning opportunities for young children in New York State by providing state of the art training for early childhood teachers.
OVER THE NEXT 5 YEARS DAY ONE WILL
Train and place 200 early childhood teachers in Poughkeepsie and Dutchess County who will receive a living wage. Provide 300 children an affordable early childhood education that helps them enter kindergarten, ready to continue learning. Help parents enter or re-enter the workforce, confident their children are thriving.
Kids love playing with water. Water helps kids learn about science and math, and is a quick way to cool off on a hot day. Find a paintbrush or kitchen sponge. Get something that holds a lot of water (a bucket, mixing bowl, saucepan.) Pick an outdoor surface for your child to paint with the water. Wood works best, like an outside door or table.
