School Readiness class opens

Family Centers officially opened its newest School Readiness classroom with a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house on Aug. 30.

Thanks to a $108,000 grant made possible by Gov. Dannel Malloy, Family Centers was able to convert library space at its First Steps Preschool at Armstrong Court into a new classroom for 13 children from low-income families in town. Additional funding was provided by the Tudor Foundation, Marge and Bill Berkley and the United Way of Greenwich.

The class will be operated by Family Centers in collaboration with the Greenwich Board of Education and the Greenwich School Readiness Council.

Kari Sullivan from the State of Connecticut Department of Education, Greenwich United Way President Stuart Adelberg and Greenwich Selectman Drew Marzullo helped Family Centers Board Member David Van Dyke cut the ceremonial ribbon to mark the classroom’s opening. Parents of the classroom’s students, along with representatives from the town, the Board of Education, Greenwich PTA and the First Presbyterian Church of Greenwich, were also in attendance.
