25 years is a long time to do anything here in Butte, but when you've touched as many young lives as AWARE's Early Head Start program, time just seems to fly on by.  AWARE is celebrating 25 Years of Early Head Start at its Center for Early Childhood in Butte. As part of this 25-year celebration, AWARE is seeking to reconnect with former employees, students and families who worked or received services in its Butte center.

AWARE Early Head Start is a grant-funded child development program for eligible children and their families. AWARE’s program provides children with services that encourage and promote social, emotional, physical growth and development and cognitive skills. Learning is designed to respond to the individual strengths and needs of each child. Children of all abilities are welcome in AWARE’s Early Head Start programs. 

"For 25 years, AWARE Early Head Start has shared with parents, the excitement of watching their infants and toddlers develop and grow. Parents have graciously allowed us in their homes and lives to support the academic and social-emotional growth of their children,' said Colleen Bosch, AWARE’s director of AWARE early childhood services.

AWARE is reaching out to the Butte community to join in the celebration.  To add to the celebration, AWARE is inviting people who are interested to take a tour of the AWARE Center for Early Childhood, to volunteer at the center, to make a donation, to follow AWARE on social media and to share this infomation with family and friends.  

The celebration will include many activities and will wrap up in June of next year.
