 Barb Plenge, director of the Bullitt County Public School’s TeenAge Parenting Program, recently received notification of receiving the Rural KIPDA Community Early Childhood Council’s mini-grant.

Located at Riverview Opportunity Center, the TeenAge Parenting Program’s Wee Care Child Development Center has met quality standards beyond the requirements for facility licensure earning a STAR rating.

“The grant has enabled us to purchase items to enhance the care and activities of our babies and toddlers,” said Plenge. “Additionally, the grant will ensure the provision of the best quality of child care possible for our children.”

Child care workers Ashley Bailey, Lisa Pack and Leigh Ward stated that the children have benefited from the enhanced learning atmosphere provided by the new toys and infant care equipment.

They all agree that the addition of the items will be conducive to the camp given to and the opportunities for the children to learn.

The Wee Care Child Development Center is a state-regulated day care facility and meets all state regulations and requirements. The day care is also rated with two stars, which allows the center to apply for mini-grants.
