CAO Scioto Head Start and Early Head Start shared the Love by Sharing the Love with Families.
Head Start and Early Head Start Families were treated to a kindness dinner on Feb. 11. The topic was Loving Yourself.
Marcia Harris, CEO of YOUnique Whole Brain Life Skills, Life Coach and Time Out for Me Executive Director, spoke to the families about their uniqueness and how to jump-start their brains when overwhelmed or feeling undervalued. The families were served dinner by their teachers and other staff as their children did kindness activities in the classroom. Each child received the book, Hooray for You! A Celebration of “You-ness” and shared a dessert with their family before leaving.
The families then had a class offered to them on the following Thursday titled, Sweet Accomplishments instructed by Karen Davis, Chocolatier and owner of Hand – Crafted Artisan Chocolate & Confections. Ms. Davis introduced the parents to the different types of chocolates and how to melt and mold them. She explained and taught the origination of the cocoa bean and the difference between the “real” chocolate and “fake.” Each family received a mold and their finished products to take home to share with their loved ones.
Carla Womack the Parent, Family and Community Engagement Manager, stated that “The CAO Head Start and Early Head Start program is happy to build relationships with our families as we learn new ways of doing things together. We have several other fun and exciting things planned in our community for our families. Stay tuned.”
