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.

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.

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.

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.

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! :-)

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.
