Dear Durham PreK Teachers and Teacher Assistants,
We at Child Care Services Association want to thank each one of you for all the hard work you put into nurturing and educating Durham's young children!
"Teachers are the heart of Durham PreK and make all the difference for the future success of our children! Even during the shut down of in-person programming, our teachers continue to connect with our children virtually to support learning and exploration of our world. We salute our teachers!"
Linda Chappel, Senior Vice President, Triangle Area Child Care Resource and Referral Services, CCSA
Your Technical Assistance Specialists are so proud of your hard work on your professional development and appreciate your commitment to each of your students.
"I would like to give a shout out to the teachers for the tremendous effort we have seen transitioning to remote learning activities for families. All of this was new territory for everyone but DPK teachers have stepped up and embraced the new engagement tool providing a variety of options suited to their family's needs."
Nita McAdoo, Technical Assistance Speacialist, CCSA
"I am excited to see teachers' creativity and determination to ensure remote learning is a success for their students!"
Kamika Henderson, Technical Assistance Speacialist, CCSA
Now, during school closures you are going above and beyond to make sure each child still gets to see their teacher and their friends through video conferencing, group messages and videos.
You are making a difference in each child's life and providing them a sense of normalcy while the world around them is confusing. You've taught them that they can still connect with each other through videos and sharing their creations with pictures.
So on behalf of Durham PreK and Child Care Services, we want to thank you for being our teachers!
UPDATE: The Durham PreK Governance Committee voted on August 19, 2021 to waive parent fees for the 2021-2022 school year. The Durham PreK Application is still open! Click here to access the application information and materials.
