Free class offered at Presbyterian Church Sunday: How to raise emotionally healthy children
All children, beginning at birth, will be healthy and successful. This is the vision of the Iowa Child Care Resource & Referral Agency.

Jesup resident Becky Elson is an Early Childhood Consultant with Region 2, based in Waterloo. Her job is to meet with preschools and child care providers in Black Hawk County, to ensure they meet state licensing and registration standards for safe childcare. Her knowledge extends far beyond checking for covers on electrical outlets.

She will be leading a class on “Raising Emotionally Healthy Children – Meeting the 5 Critical Needs of Children” Sunday, March 11, from 1 – 3 pm. The class is free, but registration is required in order to provide materials for all attendees. It is being held at First Presbyterian Church, 643 Sixth Street in Jesup.

Please call 827-1701 before March 5 to register or ask any questions. The class is open to everyone. (As a spoiler alert: “children” can be interpreted as “children of all ages.”)

Becky began her career by obtaining her degree in elementary education, with an endorsement in early childhood. She has observed an alarming increase in Compassion Deficit Disorder and lack of emotional maturity in our society. How can we as parents, grandparents, teachers, youth leaders or just citizens in general, cope with these issues or nurture others? This is an opportunity to learn and share.
