Buffalo County Rooted in Relationships is collaborating with the Kearney Area Children’s Museum to have a Free Fall Fun Night on November 19, 2020 from 5-7 p.m. The first 100 families will receive a book voucher for a free book and take-home packet with social emotional activities. Families will also be able to stay and play at the museum.

The book and activity packets will provide a fun way for children to engage in social emotional development. Social and emotional skills set our children up for positive experiences and is the foundation to helping our children thrive for years to come.

All individuals will be required to wear a mask at the event. Directive Health Measures will be observed in planning and hosting this event. Event details may change if there are changes in the DHM at that time. Visit the Facebook event page for more information and updates: https://www.facebook.com/events/1035734513600064

Buffalo County Rooted in Relationships provides evidence-based strategies to support caregivers and children up to the age of eight to create healthy social-emotional relationships. These strategies increase the quality of these important bonds during a particularly important time in a child’s life, while decreasing challenging behaviors.

“I am grateful beyond belief to be a part of Rooted; this program is just what I personally needed for my business. The coaching is stress relieving, the trainings have been very resourceful and informative. I have met many new friends during collaboration meetings, and the incentives/grants have been a huge resource in getting my childcare what we need to better our environment,” said Rachel Pierce, Creative Kids Child Care.

The Covid-19 pandemic was hard on so many this year, but especially our child care providers. This year Rooted in Relationships was able to provide Social Emotional kits to child care providers in Buffalo County. They also provided bonus pay checks to help providers through this time.

“My kids and I are loving all of the new materials! I can’t even begin to tell you all of the wonderful blessings I feel are stemming from my Rooted Experience but I am so very grateful! I definitely can see a difference in my kids and myself as a provider too. I went into the program without any specific expectations other than hopes I had for myself and I have definitely gained so much more,” said Jessica McKillip.
