Lakeshore In the Community

Giving Back to the Gulf Coast Child Care Community
New Orleans, Louisiana

On June 7, Lakeshore, along with Exchange magazine, Bright Horizons Family Solutions, and Teaching Strategies, sponsored a day of “Replenishing, Rebuilding & Rejuvenating” on the grounds of Delgado Community College. The event was designed to celebrate the resilience of the Gulf Coast early childhood community.

Activities throughout the day centered on professional development as well as fun. Early childhood curriculum specialist and author Dr. Pam Schiller keynoted the afternoon session and was a tremendous hit with the crowd. Schiller focused on ways to de-stress and rejuvenate mind, body, spirit, and enthusiasm for the important work everyone is doing with kids. A number of nationally known authors, writers, and trainers, including Kay Albrecht, Paula Jorde Bloom, and Debra Sullivan, donated time to offer workshops on a wide variety of topics—from employee relations to learning through play.

There were plenty of fun activities for everyone as well, such as chair yoga, qigong, Jazzercise, Make & Take sessions presented by Lakeshore, dancing to a New Orleans jazz band, and door prize drawings. The event was a huge success, with over 400 attendees?double the turnout that was expected!
