Meet Carina

Carina is a Head Start student currently enrolled in our Summer Learning & Enrichment program. At three-and-a-half years old, Carina is small for her age. She has more difficulty with speech than many of her peers. She’s often mistaken for a much younger child.

The Summer Learning & Enrichment program is especially helpful for kids like Carina. Instead of being set back, Carina is spending her summer in a high-quality early education environment where she can continue building on what she learned in the previous school year.

She’s retaining hard-won skills, and her teachers can continue supporting her development and reinforcing the important progress she has made as a student at Children’s Friend.

Your support make summer learning and new experiences possible for vulnerable children!
