Thank you to Pastor Josh and his team of volunteers from Mountain City Church who came out last Sunday to paint the sheds and spruce up the playground at our Muldoon Center. The before and after pictures tell the story! They also left us a palette of diapers, baby food and other supplies to share with our families. The children loved your work! 😃 #ImpactAlaska

Big shout out and thank you to Carlos and his team at Gallo's Mexican Restaurant on Arctic, for catering our Staff Appreciation taco bar this past Friday. The food and service were absolutely fantastic! Carlos and his team were wonderful to work with. 😀

All KCI locations are closed today Monday, the 29th, in observance of Memorial Day. We will return to regular business hours Tuesday, the 30th. Thank you to all who served and serve our country still. 🇺🇸❤️

We are excited to welcome Katrina Ahlfield as KCI’s new Executive Director! Katrina has worked at Kids’ Corps for 17 years and has been our HR manager since 2015. Katrina is also a long time Alaskan who once upon a time was a Head Start child herself. Her experience, integrity, positive outlook and leadership skills make her a great leader to stand with our parents, staff and community partners in supporting a bright future for children and families.

KCI recently received a donation of Smart Tables to use in our classrooms as a learning tool for students. Pictured is our Muldoon Family Advocate Daphne with Side A students. She went over the rules and expectations with students on how to properly use the Smart Table. Setting rules and expectation of use helps children become more independent by promoting skills that focus on patience, taking turns, and problem solving.

In celebration of Earth Day, Gladys Wood students made a bird seed mixture to mold into fun shapes for feeders.

Our infant and toddlers are learning how to take care of babies. This type of pretend play helps children develop empathy skills that will aide them in building healthy relationships throughout life.

Happy Birthday Head Start!! Celebrating 58 years! 🥳
Did you know, the Head Start program began in 1965 as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s war on poverty. Since that time, the program has helped millions of children get a head start on their education and development. Head Start programs are available in every state, as well as in many tribal communities and in Puerto Rico.
