We Raise Our Hands to Our Partners! 

The Marion Forsman Boushie Early Learning Center is associated with the Office of Head Start.  We were nominated in January 2009 for the Centers of Excellence award by the Office of Head Start.          Our center is partnered with  Touchpoints by a grant to educate teachers and parents regarding the Touchpoint method created by Dr. T. Berry Brazleton.  We have two people on staff who have been trained in this method, and have been partners for over seven years,        Reading Is Fundamental is a grant the MFBELC holds which provides at least three reading programs each year to encourage parents, families and community members to read to children for at least 20 minutes per day        SPARK (Sports, Play, and Active Recreation for Kids) is a non-competitive, physical activities program that encourages kids to move their body and develop healthy lifestyle habits.  

           The Second Step curriculum helps children learn how to keep their bodies safe and healthy. Topics cover a wide range including fire and gun safety, stranger awareness, street safety, safe touches, 911, poison awareness and water safety.     

SPARC Literacy, a section of the National Head Start Familiy Literacy group supports family literacy by providing education and training for families to help them achieve self-sufficiency and financial sustainablilty.
