Aloha.  The Kaua'i PATCH team participated in the 14th Annual “Sequenced Transition to Education in the Public Schools (S.T.E.P.S.) Parent Child Fair was held on April 9th at the Kukui Grove Center from 9am-1pm.  This was a wonderful event for families, and PATCH enjoyed providing information for parents, as well as hands on activities for the children. 


The Visitor Industry Charity Walk took place on May 14th with all of the PATCH staff walking.  PATCH Kaua'i also teamed up with American Red Cross and Leadership Kaua'i to raise money through a bake sale for the Visitor Industry Charity Walk. PATCH will be applying for a grant from this group to support our Provider Appreciation events.

On Saturday, June 4, 2016, Wilcox Memorial Hospital invites you all to participate in their Annual KIDS SUMMER FEST from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Kaua‘i Marriott Resort with a health and wellness workshop. This free community health event is a fun family affair, especially targeted at children ages 5-18. Last year more than 1000 participants attended. This event offers free sports physicals (first-come, first-served) in addition to interactive workshops focused on a safe and healthy summer for our keiki. Please drop by the PATCH table and say Hi.

Please check the PATCH Training Tracks Training calendar for new classes which will be starting in July. We will be offering the Basic series on Family Child Care, this is the class that prepares individuals to open their own licensed Family Child Care Home, so be sure to let any Prospective Providers know. PATCH will also be offering a series called Time to Sign, one of Lorraine’s favorite classes as well as a series called Challenging Behaviors which is geared toward helping FCCs who already working with children. Please check the Kaua'i Training Tracks Schedule for details on these classes.

Kaua'i plans to hold a Providers Appreciation Event on Sat. July 30, 2016 at the Kaua'i Beach Hotel. Providers are invited to enjoy breakfast and listen to Kaua'i Easter Seals’ Occupational Therapist Thao Tu speak about “Helping Children with Special Needs: A Practical Approach – Part II”.  This training is a follow up to the very successful and well attended Feb. 2016 Provider Event where we had Thao has our speaker. We will also hear from 2 other speakers about how they identify and work with children on the autism spectrum. Look for an email from PATCH with more details.

Be sure check the training calendar in this issue of Training Tracks for the details on all of the classes being offered on Kauai in July, August and September 2016. We’d love to see you.
