Early Childhood School Readiness Backpacks

Greta Nelson delivered School Readiness Backpacks to Isanti County Public Health.  The backpacks are intended for children ages 3-5 who may not be receiving any early childhood programming.  They include writing, math, fine motor activities, a book and kindergarten readiness information.  The backpacks were first funded through the Bluejacket Innovation Grant and will continue through a grant from the Initiative Foundation.  Cambridge-Isanti Early Childhood is partnering with Allina, Isanti County Family Services and Isanti County Public Health to distribute the backpacks.
