Visitors' Day 2017
June 6 - 7th Monmouth/Middlesex Counties, New Jersey
Interested in seeing Shine Early Learning in action? Come visit us this summer!
Watch our free webinar to learn more about Shine Assist!
Highly experiential — hands-on, interactive and engaging.
Shine Assist works hand-in-hand with a network of new and existing Head Start and Early Head Start organizations like yours, providing support to senior leaders while rolling out high-impact, proven tactics in early education, family engagement and program design and management.
Whether you are a new EHS-CCP grantee interested in a compelling family engagement model or an established program looking to ensure that you can successfully meet your five-year goals and expand your impact, Shine Assist provides a robust set of resources including in-person, phone and online support, as well as a suite of essential tools, employing constant innovations to help your program live up to its fullest potential.
Visitors’ Day is a unique opportunity to get hands-on experience with the Shine Assist approach.
Each year, we invite interested programs to visit our facilities, speak directly with staff and Shine Assist leads, and observe some of the key elements of our approach firsthand in our Acelero Learning Head Start and EHS programs.
