$225,000 LA tax dollars
have been dedicated for Early Education Programs in Pointe Coupée since 2016.
second annual School Readiness Tax Credit (SRTC) fundraising campaign was
another success!! SRTC contributions
made by qualifying businesses at the end of 2017 brought $120,000 LA tax
dollars that will be invested directly in our community, not to the state
fund. These tax dollars will provide
high-quality early care, development and education programs for children birth
to four and their families.
The investments will
be dedicated to continue developing a professional certified early care
workforce in our community. Experienced
certified early education professionals train and mentor our early child care
workforce weekly. All provided at no
cost through the benefit of our community’s investments. Through high-quality
care and education, our professional workforce will get our youngest children
emotionally and academically ready for kindergarten.
