Our partner, Children's Institute, recently released a new website and we're so excited for them! A lot of hard work goes into building a new website (we should know) and we wanted to celebrate that work. So, this week on our blog, we're highlighting some of the exciting things going on at Children's Institute (CI), both old and new. We hope you find something intruiging on this list and encourage you to browse around their site.
TRACC - The Training, Resources and Coaching Center (TRACC) is a new collaborative venture led by Children's Institute. Bringing the practices of Whole Child Health to the community of Rochester through a partnership of 13 area agencies, TRACC offers just what it sounds like: training (direct services and a directory of providers), resources for understanding and supporting whole child health, as well as coaching for a more in-depth professional development experience.
Primary Project - 'An oldie but a goodie', this program continues to be the flagship program of Children's Institute. Having just celebrated its 60th anniversary, we at COMET are proud to support Primary Project and the thousands of children who are screened and served by this program each year. "Primary Project is a national evidence-based program that helps children in Pre-K through third grade adjust to school, gain confidence, social skills, and focus on learning. Through play, Primary Project addresses children’s school adjustment difficulties and increases their chances for success."
CI Blog - So mcuh work happens inside the walls of Children's Institute (and beyond), and now people can hear about it! The blog is a place where the team shares the nuggets of wisdom picked up from decades of work strengthening the social-emotional health of children and youth. They also share about their staff and internal projects - all the ways they work to bring SEL practices into every day life.
COMET - That's right, you can find us on the Children's Institute website. As the technology partner for CI, we work together to offer an online solution for data collection and reporting of all the assessment tools developed by Children's institute over the years. Program evaluation is a core service offered by CI and we're proud to support that work.
