THE 5TH ANNUAL HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS TOY DRIVE

HOPE for the Holidays is an annual toy drive for Riverside County foster youth. We coordinate with Regional Managers and Social Workers from Riverside County Department of Social Services (DPSS) to identify foster youth who could benefit from these gifts and fulfill them by various methods.

From community donations at multiple donation sites throughout Riverside County to funds from district and city agencies, we aim to make sure all foster youth in Riverside County have a gift to open. 

Last year, the generosity from the Community Designation (CID) funds from Districts 1, 2, 3, and 5, My Stuff Bags Foundation, Blythe Energy, and the community who donated toys and other items, the toy drive was a success. HOPE staff coordinated with DPSS regional managers and social workers to identify foster youth who could benefit from the gifts. HOPE was able to gift a total of 805 foster youth throughout Riverside County.

Employee Spotlight: Cassandra Walker!

This week:
The Amazing Cassandra Walker!

Cassandra has worked for FSA since 2004. Since starting she’s worked at four of our Child Development sites and says that her time working with us has made her “a much better teacher and even a better mother at home.”

Her own children have attended our FSA Child Development Centers and she says, “This is a great place to send your kids during the day. I love how the teachers really treat the children as their own. There is a real sense of family here.”

Cassandra says she is most proud to be, what she calls, a “resource teacher”. “I’m proud to be in the position I am and have the FSA’s trust to help other teachers reach their personal and professional goals.”

“FSA really helps you grow as an individual and opens a lot of doors for you, professionally.”

We are so happy to have you on our team and we hope you continue to have an amazing time working with us!
From all of us here at FSA, THANK YOU!

National Association for the Education of Young Children Awards Rubidoux Child Development Center for Having met the NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards

We warmly welcome you to join us in a celebration of achievement in attaining this nationally recognized award for improving the standard of care and education at our Rubidoux Child Development Center. Our staff, community associates, and families together have worked diligently to meet the stringent criteria required by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and we would love to invite you to celebrate our collective success. 

The NAEYC Accreditation process is an extensive self-study that measures the program and its services against the ten NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards and more than 400 related criteria that have been vetted and updated by nationally recognized professional early childhood educators and advocates over the past 35 years. The NAEYC program has become widely recognized in the United States by early childhood educational organizations and professionals as a sign of high-quality care and education, meeting the highest standards available in our field that not only reflects the latest research, but also the best practices in child development and education.

Our success would have been unfeasible without the extensive support we have received from parents and families in our program attending our meetings and filling out our surveys. Our community partners like the Rubidoux Library and La Sierra University, the Rubidoux Community Resource Center;  that came to our classroom to read to the children and share valuable resources with our staff, and our administrative and consulting staff at our corporate office who ensured we had the necessary materials and trainings to achieve success. Moreover, the time and work put in by our dedicated teaching staff and associates over countless months have been incalculable. Our teaching staff and associates have gone above and beyond expectations to create a high-quality learning environment at our center. This is why we would like to come together as a community to celebrate this momentous time with you as we continue to raise and improve the quality of care and education to the highest degree for the children of our community on Thursday June 2nd 2016 from 10:00am to 12:00 p.m.
