The Early Childhood Education and Parents as Teachers resource library is available to early care and education providers in Clarke, Decatur, Lucas, Ringgold, and Union counties who purchase a membership.
The library will provide access to equipment and materials designed to support curriculum and staff development.
Types of Resources Available
Just a reminder of the services we offer at the library...
Everyone's favorite - lamination! Laminate your materials so that you won't have to re-create them!
*Die Cuts: We have added some new patterns. These are great labels or can be used to create games and activities. Laminate your paper first to make less work for you.
Book Binding: Do you have a favorite book that is falling apart? We can fix it! Bind student and teacher created books as well.
Resources to check out: Looking for some new ideas? We have shelves of resource books available for check out.
Computer and Laser Printer: There are some fabulous Web sites where you can print games and learning activities for your classroom or home daycare. Try www.childcareland.com. Look for "free printables."
We also have Boardmaker and other software available for use and checkout.
The early childhood professionals who visit the library are also great resources for ideas!
Please remember to bring your own paper for printing and die-cutting.
Help us keep the email list current: Do we need to update your email address? Do you have a colleague who would like to receive updates about the library?
I have been working on organizing our shelves. Recently, I have sorted all our journals. If you need to utilize them for CDA or college courses, they are ready for you!
Want to make something durable the kids can use over and over? Our new laminating film is marker and crayon friendly and dry erase markers and crayons wipe off with little effort. It's great for name writing practice, tracing letters/numbers/shapes, pre-writing cards for the writing table, and so forth.
Spring die cuts:
Jumbo (8x10): egg, flower
Others: barn, butterfly, cow, cloud, fish, frog, lamb, pig, raindrops, sun, tulip, tractor
I'm still compiling a wish list of die cuts, so let me know what you would like to see.
