MISSION STATEMENT: The Wichita & Affiliated Tribes Child Care Development Fund Program organized this event to enable community and Tribal program support to provide fun, educational materials and learning activities including information booths for the children of Anadarko ages 3-6 to help develop a positive image of our Native American Child Care services Program within the community and surrounding area. FOCUS:To open this event to the Native American and Non-Native American Community Child-Care Centers and Head Start Programs and Public Schools in the City of Anadarko. To invite Law Enforcement, Fire Department, Safety, Environmental, Recreational, Cultural Awareness and Nutritional entities as well as other concerned Native American and Non-Native American community organizations to be given an opportunity to participate. To develop and maintain a positive rapport between the Native American & Non-Native American Community in providing a safe environment for each child to be educated in safety, health and environmental issues affecting their welfare. Community participation and response averages 700-800 participants annually. Pre-registration is requested in order to provide T-Shirts and a light lunch, but un-registered community children and families are welcome. There has never been any incident involving negative behavior from children. Children need to be busy, engaged and interested. This event provides many activities to keep children interested. Learning through play is essential. Across the country, young children and their families depend on quality education and child care, which help children get a great start, and bring lasting benefits for our society as a whole. April has been established the “Month of the Young Child” by the National Association for the Education of Young children. This is a time to recognize the children, people and programs that are helping to build better futures for all children. In celebration of the children, the Wichita & Affiliated Tribes Child Care & Development Fund Program is making preparations for a one-day event. Children 6 and younger are welcome to participate in the parade and children’s celebration. The event is open to all day cares, head starts and public-school kindergarten and pre-k programs. Floats, banners, flags as well as children’s smiles will fill the streets of Anadarko. This is an excellent event that provides community awareness. Mark your calendar for April 25, 2019. We need your help in making this day successful by touching the lives of children! Respectfully,Kathy Hopen Wichita & Affiliated Tribes CCDF Program Director Good Morning,We have a parade and due to the date of this event, and testing, the local schools are unable to provide a marching band. We have the Illinois Marching Band Drum line CD that we play as we lead the children. It’s fun to watch them dance to the music. Would it be possible for you to lead our parade and play our CD?Please consider our request. Thank you!Kathy Hopen, DirectorChild Care & Development Fund1503 S.
