On April 19, the UW Oshkosh Children’s Learning and Care Center Scholastic Book Fair raised more than $1,400, helping the Center provide $1,000 worth of free books for teachers to use in their classrooms.

“On behalf of the Children’s Center, we want to thank all of you for your support and assistance in helping to keep children interested in books and reading,” Center Assistant Director Julie Dey said, thanking the campus community for its support.

The Children’s Center’s mission “is to provide exemplary early care and education through the use of early childhood best practices within a safe and caring environment for children and families in the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh learning community and our collaborating partners.” It is housed in Swart Hall, home to the first teacher-training kindergarten in the United States.

The Center “provides quality care for newborns through eight years of age” and features two four-year-old kindergarten classrooms (Ready 4 Learning, R4L) and two Integrated Early Childhood classrooms in collaboration with the Oshkosh Area School District.
