This week Public Service Company of Oklahoma, an operating unit of American Electric Power, donated books to the Early Care and Education Program at CKTC. The contribution is made to honor Week of the Young Child. WOYC is an annual celebration for the Early Care center that is hosted by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
NAEYC is a professional membership organization that promotes high-quality early learning for all young children. Both NAEYC and the Early Care program at CKTC work to achieve a collective vision: That all young children thrive and learn in a society dedicated to ensuring they reach their full potential.
“Reading is an integral part of the day-to-day activities at the center,” said Director Amy Cowan. “This donation is greatly appreciated and such a highlight for the children.”
Not only is the center a 3-star child care facility, but it’s also a training program for students. Those enrolled in the program learn how to become licensed teachers in early care facilities.For over half a century, CKTC has provided career training, business and industry services and leadership programs to a rural district in southwest Oklahoma.
