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!
“Oliver Button is a Sissy”
“I Will Be Okay!”

Our MISSION is to create a model teaching and early learning community where families, educators and future teachers collaborate to nurture every child’s potential, from day one.
OVER THE NEXT 6 YEARS DAY ONE WILL
Train 200 early childhood teachers in Poughkeepsie and Dutchess County. Provide 300 children affordable early childhood education that helps them enter kindergarten ready to continue learning and improve early childhood education for an additional 8,000 children through our teacher network. Help our county recover from the pandemic by creating a living wage profession and getting 6,000 parents back to work.
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.
