Early Childhood Alliance (ECA), the Child Care Resource and Referral agency serving Noble County, recently received a $5,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Noble County. The funds will help support ECA’s Parents as Teachers program (PAT) in Noble County. Supporting parents in their roles as a child’s first teachers, PAT educators, Susan Cook, Annie Kolb, and Kathy Monesmith, make home visits to demonstrate activities and share ideas that enhance child development and school readiness skills.  Margarita White, Community Foundation Program Director, presented the $5,000 check to CEO Madeleine Baker, and Family Support Coordinator Lanissa Maggert.
