Panther Post: Early Childhood looking for members

The Park Rapids Early Childhood Initiative (ECI) is a coalition of community members who care about our youngest children (0-5) and their families.

Anyone who shares this passion is welcome to join us in making our community stronger, safer, healthier ... and more fun.

Our current projects include; providing Gather and Grow trainings for local child care providers, creating ECI prep packs for Essentia Health, which assist parents in completing the preschool screening for their 3 and 4 year old at the clinic, and giving baby blankets to our new babies at St. Joseph's Area Health Services. All these projects are funded by donations.

If you are interested in joining ECI or making a donation please contact Dawn Leeseberg at 237-6600.
