Chatham County Partnership for Children as an agency is genuinely concerned about the children and their families in our community. The services provided are valued on mulitple levels. The Executive Director has her eyes and ears open to the needs in the local community. She is very sensitive to the current trends in in childcare and keeps community partners engaged and ready to respond to the needs of our children. The NAPPSAC Prorgam, a program designed for childcare centers promotes healthy eating habits and exercise, was funded in response to the childhood obesity in Chatham County. The advantage of the program is that operators and parents are taught intervention that can be rooted in the community.

Our community has benefited from the Immunization tracking Program which is funded by this program. Chatham County has an immunization rate of greater than 95% for children 0 - 2 years of age.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If I had the availabilty of resources, I would continue to fund such programs to keep our children in the best possible state of health in order to promote positive physical and mental growth and development.

I am the director the KidSCope program, which has worked with the Chatham County Partnership for Children since 1996. We have partnered with them to implement a Child Care Mental Health Consultation program that has worked closely with local child care centers to help teachers deal more effectively with young children with challenging behaviors. CCPC, its staff and board have been very supportive of this program as well as other programs that KidSCope implements in Chatham County. They are always striving to help local agencies meet the needs of children, families, and child care providers. It is joy to work with them.

Executive Director, Genevieve Megginson, spoke to our Central carolina Community College undergraduate class about the importance of Early Childhood Education in the state of NC. The lecture was most informative and touched the hearts and minds of our future early childhood educators in NC. As a faculty member of CCCC we would like to thank Chatham County Partnership for Chidlren for their time and expertise in sharing important ideas and concepts to our students.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the college setting and community seting of Pittsboro where I live.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase the amount of state funding to reassure that proper staffing for our children is appropriate.

Partnership for Children is very active in the community. They often participate in local outreach events to get the word out about their various programs. I often partner with the organization on obesity prevention efforts to help kids become more active and eat healthier. Partnership for Children truly cares about our young children and reaches hundreds of these kids with their efforts.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing how their funding supports and helps young children that are served through my agency.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure they received adequate funding each year so they wouldn't have to cut back services.

The Chatham County Partnership for Children has been a great resource for myself and my colleagues. They have worked very closely with us by providing support for the children I work with and their families. They offer professional development workshops as well as individual support. They are an asset to the community and the families that live in Chatham County.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

receiving professional development and individual assistance from their staff. I have been able to expand my knowledge of working with children through these resources.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change nothing at this time. It is a great organization.

Chatham County Partnership for Children is an amazing group of people who truly believe in the importance of Early Childhood education and care. Without this great organization, many children would be left without the resources and services that they need to succeed! Without successful children, there will be no successful adults! I am truly blessed to be able to connect with this organization to help the young children in Chatham County! :-)

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My work everyday - seeing the growth in the children, the increased awareness and understanding and improved skills of the teachers/caregivers and parents, and watching how the atmosphere around these children improves.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change anything. They are exceptional people who do what they do very well.

The Chatham Partnership works tirelessly with local and state agencies and government to provide high quality early education opportunities to children of this rural county. I have been an early educator and a parent in this community for over twenty years and have seen the vast improvement in child care , public school pre-k and teacher training since the Partnership has been active here. Kudos!

I work with preschoolers with special needs in this county. We have had several children in common throughout the years. They have been outstanding in helping with any information needed, contacts with us colleagues in the community, and with parents of the children they serve. The staff is knowledgeable and professional, and ready to help whenever needed. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with everyone I have ever come across in that building.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the children grow and learn in their classroom environments. I have also learned through classes and workshops they have put on.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change nothing!
