Liz Blek always has the most useful information in the National Kindergarten Alliance Newsletter.  If you’re not a member, you really need to check it out because they work tirelessly (and freely) advocating best practices for young children.  Go to for more information and to view past newsletters.

The foundations below were listed in the recent NKA Newsletter.  I know you don’t have time today, but save this information for when you get bored over your winter break.  Think of some place you’d like to visit this summer (like Charleston, SC) and then check out one of these opportunities.  Somebody’s going to get the money, so it might as well be you!
