Promoting Family Involvement in Children’s Education
Family involvement is very important at SmartKids Child Care & Learning Center. We believe that children learn best when they are supported by their families and learning continues at home. That’s why we are committed to ensuring that parents of our children at our Meadowlands and Washington, PA centers are always informed of what is happening in their child’s education. We also help families discover how they can further encourage their child’s development outside of the classroom.
Between the 1950s and late 1980s, individuals at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune were exposed to toxic chemicals in their drinking water. It’s estimated that nearly 1 million people were exposed. Babies born to mothers who drank the tap water while pregnant were four times more likely to have serious birth defects. After decades of tireless advocacy, new laws allow Camp Lejeune water contamination victims to take action.
