School and Family Resources – Cool Culture

Are you encouraging your staff and families to participate in Cool Culture Events and visit Cool Culture  sponsored attractions?

Cool Culture is an important resource for families, encouraging and enabling educational, culturally rich family togetherness, which is one of the ACS and AMC goals when providing day care services to qualifying families.

With this in mind, greater participation in these events helps ensure re-admittance to the program in the future….
