‘A Snowy Day’ comes to Florence Fuller Child Development Centers
BOCA RATON — Mayor Susan Whelchel and Deputy Mayor Susan Haynie participated in the Jumpstart’s Read for the Record at Florence Fuller Child Development Centers (FFCDC) Oct. 7.
Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is a national campaign to set a new world record for the largest shared reading experience on a single day.
As part of a nationwide focus to showcase the role reading plays in a young child’s life, mayors around the country joined together to read to children in schools, community centers, libraries, and colleges. The campaign also kicks off Jumpstart’s yearlong program, preparing preschool children in low-income neighborhoods for success in school and life.
For more than three decades, Florence Fuller Child Development Centers have provided childcare and family support services for economically disadvantaged families.
FFCDC’s mission is to empower these families to succeed and to prepare the children for a lifetime of positive learning. For more information, call (561) 391-7274 or visit www.ffcdc.org.
