Please notice that our current calendar is on our website and page and/or has been emailed to you; it is only for the month of April. Although Child Care Links has a calendar for April, we will mainly be doing off site trainings and discontinue all training at East Point Office Park. Child Care Links will continue to provide off site training from March through June 30th. If you are interested in an off-site please feel free to call our office to make arrangements.
Child Care Links is in the process of changing our mission and is undergoing another reorganization. Child Care Links has long valued the relationship we have had with child care providers over the years. Just as change has occurred for providers, so has change come to Child Care Links. I want to thank you for your support and loyalty over all the years we have been in operation.
Sincerely,
Ginny Smith
Executive Director
