Effingham, IL-(Effingham Radio)- Effingham Public Library is pleased to announce a pilot In-home Daycare Outreach Program thanks to the $500 Community Champions Grant from Constellation, an Exelon Company.
10 in-home daycares will be selected for this pilot project set to begin this fall. Effingham Public Library plans to provide a story time for the children at the daycares, along with bags filled with books and early literacy toys and games. These services will be provided on a monthly basis and the bags will be interchanged amongst the participating in-home daycares.
Through Constellation’s Community Champions program, organizations are encouraged to apply for small grants, up to $500, from Constellation for causes that are important to their community. Preferred consideration is given to those requests where the project, organization, or initiative focuses on education, environment, or youth.
Any in-home daycares in Effingham city limits that are interested in taking part should contact Catherine Bailey to discuss their interest.
