Event Description

Explore Farm to Early Childhood programming with us! Farm to School encourages children to investigate their food systems, adopt healthy eating behaviors, and develop deeper connections to their communities. It connects Classrooms, Cafeterias/Kitchens, and Communities (the 3C’s)! Now you — whether you’re a family child care, Head Start, center-based, public pre-K, or home visiting educator — can join our series, Cultivating Farm to Early Childhood (FTEC), to explore and expand your food and nutrition programming while building and strengthening community relationships. Learn how FTEC concepts help meet multiple standards across licensing, CACFP, VELS, and STARS by promoting children’s learning, social emotional well-being, healthy eating habits, family engagement, and community building. Participate in all three sessions, or pick the one you’re most interested in. This course will focus on the Community part of the 3C Model of Farm to Early Childhood (FTEC). Participants will examine the resources available within their community, build strategies for accessing those opportunities, and develop skills to support our youngest community members in being a part of the community that surrounds them. Vermont is fortunate to have statewide programs that are great resources for educators. We’ll connect you with organizations such as Vermont Harvest of the Month, Vermont Community Garden Network, Vermont Institute Natural Sciences (VINS), Chittenden Solid Waste District, and ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain.
