Attention adults that care for littles,
This is a great resource! If you follow this link and scroll to the bottom, it is a little more user friendly.
This is a great place for parents to find out if they are eligible for money to help pay for childcare!
It is also the place to find opportunities to go into the early childhood field with funding support!

❤️I love the idea of a gratitude scavenger hunt! There is so much research that supports the effect of gratitude on mental health. Some of these could also be used as a fun way to get outside and enjoy nice weather with your students, too!

Thanks Natural Beach Living for the ideas!
