Centers for Families and Children Director Elizabeth Newman has announced that CFC will close the Old Brooklyn-Brooklyn Centre neighborhood daycare on July 31st this year. FTR - the Archwood United Church of Christ building PASSED all federal inspections and staff received highest rating 5 stars!
Please call her and express your concern. Many generations of families have grown up w/the continuity of kind and loving service provided by the wonderful teachers at WSEM Archwood Headstart (now Centers for Families and Children's Archwood Early Learning Centers). Ms. Newman has stated that the center can no longer continue at UCC Archwood because they deem the structure "unsafe" - however she would not divulge why she considers it "unsafe." Archwood United Church of Christ has served this neighborhood with a daycare location for generations - with staff who can serve our uniquely diverse community - 50 + families will lose the continuity of service provided by staff who speak American Sign Language, Spanish, Arabic, Cantonese and other languages - and have been specially trained to address autism, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy and other chronic conditions. Please contact Ms. Newman with your concerns:
