About LINC Educare

The LINC Educare initiative promotes early childhood education through a simple approach: educate and train those who care for our children between zero and three, and up through school age. Educare providers attend workshops on child development, cognition, motor skills, behavior problems, child abuse and neglect. Click on an image below to learn more about LINC Educare opportunities.

Discuss techniques that will make the most of these learning experiences at mealtime.
