Our El Mirage program enjoyed a special celebration today as Little Free Library #85593 was officially welcomed and opened for visitors! Because we place a high value on being active in our community, the decision to open our own Little Free Library was one that was not difficult to make. We are looking forward to another way we can serve families within our program and community while also promoting a love of literacy in young children. Studies show that children who are read quality literature throughout the fundamental, preschool years better develop language skills necessary to read and excel in Kindergarten and all future school years.

Grand Opening Celebration

Our preschoolers were thrilled to be included in this special event! Our program Director, Ms. Sharon talked to the children about the new library and explained that it is for everyone, we encouraged children to tell their families, friends and community members to help us keep the library active! Ms. Tiffany then read “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie,” which is always a favorite!  Together we welcomed each book to our library and gave it a warm hug before placing it inside.

Valley Child Care & Learning Center has served families within the Phoenix area since 1967 with high-quality infant, toddler and preschool programs. Affordable tuition and flexible scheduling alongside safe and loving childcare have always remained our highest priority. Because of support from our families and the community our name is now well known in the childcare and preschool industry in Arizona. With the newest Little Free Library addition now open at our El Mirage location, we look forward to another opportunity to serve families within our area during the fundamental preschool years.
