We dropped off a fun selection of pop-up books and preschool favorites on January 18th at Care Around the Clock, a childcare center in Bridgeport that serves over 270 children ranging from infants through 5 years old. Madeline Carrillo, the Childcare Coordinator, is a wonderful bundle of unbridled energy and enthusiasm. She took us on a tour of the 26 classrooms, where we got a sense for how much all the teachers and children there love to read.
It is part of the Hall Neighborhood House which provides services and support to downtown Bridgeport through a Youth Services program, the Hall Arts Academy (HAA) and the Ella Jackson Senior Citizen Center. We hope to provide books to all of these centers in the future.
