Hi Lindsey! Welcome to C&NN. I'm so glad you found us and have jumped in to groups and discussions. It sounds like you're participating in exciting things. I look forward to more discussion and hope you continue to find the forum a rich source of resources and sharing.
Lindsey, can you send me the name of this nature center? Amazingly forward-thinking, isn't it? I wonder how they managed to pull everything together to make their classroom(s) meet Illinois state licensing regs. Just doing that can drive a new center nuts. But, what one can do, another can do. I never thought I'd be interested in managing another childcare center..... is it a a nursery school or a full-day child care center? Thanks, Ann
