At KidSPOT, we believe that encouraging creativity in children sparks dialogue and problem solving, and empowers young people to engage as valued members of our diverse community. The KidSPOT Advisory Board is a group of dedicated volunteers who give their time and expertise to help KidSPOT provide programs offering opportunities for children and families in our community to
Play. Create. Explore.
This month, longtime KidSPOT Advisory board members Mary Ann Herron and Penny Block's terms were up, so we regretfully bid them farewell. Mary Ann and Penny are both talented, creative, and wise educators, and we thank them both for years of tireless service to KidSPOT!
We welome new KidSPOT board members LaToya Johnson and Pat Parkhurst!
LaToya (left) has over 12 years experience working with children, youth and families in both nonprofit and direct service. She is the founder and owner of Saving Hope Consulting in Kent County, and she began the winter as the KidSPOT After School Program Coordinator and Lead Teacher. We certainly hope she will return to that role when it is safe to bring kids together again.
