FREE Tote Exchange Program for Home-Based Child Care Providers

Take part in Born Learning Connection's T.O.T.E.S. Program (Taking on Tomorrow's Educational Success). Each tote is filled with fun and informative tools to share literacy and learning experiences with the children in your care. It is an excellent way for you to engage the children and connect learning experiences in meaningful and enjoyable ways. Each tote will contain books, activities and hands-on manipulates to be used during the month all designed around a different theme.

How it works

Each month, a Born Learning Coordinator will visit and exchange the tote for FREE. Along with books and activities, there will be information for you to share with the families of the children you serve. Throughout the year Born Learning will provide additional items to you that you can give away to your families including books and take home activities.

Why are we doing this?

Born Learning Connection is an early education service provided by United Way of Madison County. We believe helping children with early educational experiences leads to greater success once they reach school. But we can't do it alone. It takes each one of us, including you and your chlld care service, to help our youngest learners along the pathway to learning success. So join United Way and Born Learning Connection in the effort by signing up for the T.O.T.E.S. program today!
