Over 250 staff members of Catholic Charities Early Childhood Services and 80 network providers participated in the Early Childhood Services Professional Development. Following the mantra of this year’s theme: “Making a Difference is What I do…Today, Tomorrow and Always”, the goal of this annual training was to promote program improvements, safeguard children and families, enhance staff knowledge, skills and abilities, while preparing children for school and helping families become self-sufficient. In addition, Early Childhood Services awarded staff for their accomplishments this year. Congratulations to Therese Cervini ECDC, Program of the Year Award; Sunset Park ECDC, Staff Attendance Award; Msgr. Andrew Landi ECDC, Child Attendance Award and St. Malachy ECDC, In-Kind Volunteer and Donation Award.
