So incredibly impressed and inspired by the @claytonstateuniv student parents at our annual Boost Family Luncheon today! #TwoGen #TwoGeneration #EarlyEdGa #ChildCare #ClaytonState #QualityRated
If there's good news about spanking, it is that less parents are doing it. Experts and care givers know that praise is more effective than physical punishment. http://ow.ly/jOnq30mBwnD #EarlyEdGa #ECE #Behavior #Spanking #Discipline #Childhood #EarlyLearning #PositiveReinforcement
Quality Care for Children is excited to recognize 54 Georgia child care programs we support through the Child and Adult Care Food Program as Moo Moo Award recipients! This is phenomenal as it indicates that these centers have had no milk serving errors over the last 12 months. We had an additional 18 centers receive an Honorable Mention. Congratulations to all of our Moo Moo Awards winners! #CACFP #GaFarmToECE #EarlyEdGa #QualityRated
Don't send your kids out trick-or-treating tonight on an empty stomach! Ghost tortilla snacks are a terrifyingly easy and tasty treat to make! Preheat oven to 350 degrees; use a cookie cutter to cut out your shape out of a corn or flour tortilla; for the corn tortilla, brush both sides with vegetable oil and salt or try the flour tortilla with melted butter and a sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon on the top. Bake in the oven for seven to 11 minutes depending on the tortilla! #Halloween #CookingWithKids #HealthyTreats #GaFarmToECE #TrickorTreating #Ghosts #Costumes #EarlyEdGa
Thanks to @gaearlyed and @atlchamber for hosting a great panel discussion today about their new report, “Opportunities Lost: How Child Care Challenges Affect Georgia’s Workforce and Economy.” #EarlyEdGa #childcare #twogen
It's #election season and chances are your child has questions about voting, who to vote for, what it means to "run for election," what does a governor do and a zillion more ready to be asked. This list of books can help with the explanations. #Read #Vote #Government #EarlyLiteracy #EarlyEdGA http://ow.ly/ck6e30mnkCT
Fifteen percent of Georgians live below the poverty line, and one in five of those are children. On International Poverty Day today, we encourage you to find out more about poverty in our state and the world. #ECE is a great start to helping those in poverty to better outcomes. #QualityRated #EarlyEdGa #EndPoverty
Our #GaFarmToECE book recommendation is "Amelia's Road" by Linda Jacobs Altman. It's about the daughter of migrant farmers who dreams of having a home of her own and a school where people know her name. #HarvestOfTheMonth #Read #EarlyEdGa https://amzn.to/2ztLRUS
Hello, Monday! #MondayMemes #ECE #EarlyEdGa
It's a great day for reading with your child. To make sure that you are helping them forge connections between their different neurological areas, be sure to combine audio with rich visuals (as well as some snuggling) and back-and-forth talking about the book, and you've got brain-building in action! #Read #EarlyLiteracy #Books #EarlyEdGa
QCC’s Parent Services Coordinator, Tonia Lamb, joined representatives from other top Georgia organizations leading the way on social change at the Two-Gen State Leadership Summit hosted by @brightfromthestart. #QualityRated #EarlyEdGa #twogen
Everyday our teachers and early childhood educators are planting seeds and tending gardens! Thank you for helping to make our world a better place by assisting in the growth of our precious children. #FoodForThought #MondayMusings #EarlyEdGa
Your young child loves creative play -- especially acting like he's cooking, on the phone, playing dress up -- all the things that he sees mommy and daddy do. He also learns important social-emotional traits too, like being kind or a good sharer, from watching you. Teach your children well. #EarlyEdGa #Milestones #ECE
THANKS to all the #EarlyHeadStart fathers that attended QCC’s “Dads Café” this past weekend to discuss approaches to strengthening families! #EarlyEdGa #fatherhood #dads #parenting
"Although all children benefit most from high quality care, girls show some improvement in lower quality care and boys are actually harmed by it." Prof. James Heckman #EarlyEdGa #QualityRated
Reading aloud clearly has so many benefits. Start at birth and do it as long as your child will let you. #EarlyLiteracy #READ #EarlyEdGa
Did you know . . . . . . that QCC paid for high quality child care for 217 children of 192 college student parents in 2017-18 through the #Boost program? We love knowing that we are helping two-generations get ahead. #EarlyEdGa #QualityRated #ChildCare

Instead of strawberries in this summer drink try our #HarvestOfTheMonth , peaches! #Local #Farmers #GaFarmToECE #EarlyEdGa
There's so many benefits to having parents actively engaged in a young child's learning and activities before they begin kindergarten. Check out the @EdSource article for some strategies being used by #ECE programs in Cali. #EarlyEdGa #Parents #EarlyChildhood #Babies #Toddlers #Preschool #Kindergarten #Learning #Play
Babies like winners. But they have to be nice winners. Great article from WABE about a new study that was just released. See link for article in comments. #EarlyEdGa #Babies #Toddlers #Winners #ECE #EarlyChildhood #BrainDevelopment #Research
What’s in your garden? #FarmToECE #EarlyEdGa #LocalFood
#GaFarmtoECE in the news!Teaching children to grow their own food encourages them to eat healthier and try new foods. Check out the article on Candy Cane’s Learning Center. #EarlyEdGa #FarmtoSchool #LocalFood #Farmers #FarmersMarkets #Cacfp #QualityRated #FoodDeserts
It's barely past lunchtime and we're already thinking about dinner. How about some grilled chicken legs? Grill twice as much for dinner tonight then freeze the leftovers for a quick meal later in the month! #NutritionMatters #CACFP #EarlyEdGa #Local #GaFarmToECE
Smoothies are a yummy and healthy snack! This recipe calls for fresh berries. Try substituting our #harvestofthemonth , peaches, for the berries or even in addition to for other great flavors. #FTECE #FarmtoECE #fruit #ECE #EarlyChildhood #EarlyEdGa http://www.georgiashape.org/sites/default/files/u23445/berries%20with%20greek%20yogurt%20and%20honey.pdf,

Peach pie or peach cobbler? We like them both but in Peach County, Ga., peach cobbler is obviously preferred as volunteers make the World's Largest Peach Cobbler (11 ft. x 5 ft.) during June's Peach Festival every year. #HarvestoftheMonth #FarmtoECE #FTECE #EarlyEdGa
August is National Peach Month! Peaches make a great snack: they are full of vitamin A and C, and are usually less than 70 calories. #HarvestoftheMonth #GeorgiaPeach #FTECE #FarmtoECE #EatLocal #EarlyEdGa #Snacks
With all this rain, our #farmtoece gardens are getting plenty of water. Smart of Little Geniuses in Marietta to collect rain water for watering when it’s dry! #FTECE #gardens #rain #earlyeducation #earlyedga #QualityRated #earlyheadstart
Eat local! Great info and tips in the newest Atlanta Parent magazine article on eating local. http://ow.ly/pIhf50i8C5M #FTECE #FarmToECE #EarlyEdGa #Farmers #EatLocal #FarmersMarkets #Gardens #Vegetables
