For over 30 years, thread has been advancing the quality of early education and child development in Alaska by empowering parents, educating child care professionals, and collaborating with communities. To realize its mission as Alaska’s Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) Network, thread provides free resources and child care referral services for families, as well as professional development, technical assistance, and financial supports to the early care and learning industry.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Learning begins at birth and those who play a major role in a child’s life during the earliest years—from birth to five years old—have a profound impact. This includes their parents, family members, child care providers, and early childhood professionals. By investing in children early on, we help to ensure they are healthier, better prepared for school, and more successful in life.
That is why thread supports thousands of Alaska’s families and early childhood teachers by providing resources like parenting information, free family events, teaching materials, trainings, and professional development. Pick.Click.Give. donations from individuals like you help us increase the quality of child care programs in Alaska and pay for resources and supports for families. You allow thread to distribute training materials to early childhood teachers, as well as, mini-grants to child care programs in communities throughout the state.
When you invest in Alaska's young children, you help pave the way for our next generation of leaders. Plus, your donations stay right here in Alaska. Thank you for joining thread in pursuing our mission!
