Prevent Child Abuse Gaston has been hard at work developing an anti-bullying program for early childhood educators. The pilot program has just been reviewed by three local preschools, and the final pre-k version will be available soon. Colorful characters draw children's attention and teach alternatives to bullying behavior. The crisp, bright visuals, posters, and ring-bound cards make this tool a familiar format for children and early childhood educators.
PCAG is happy to announce we have now moved into our new digs!! We have had so many exciting events happening since our big move that we find it necessary to postpone our Open House. We can't wait for you to meet our staff and learn more about the programs and trainings available through Prevent Child Abuse Gaston. Unique prints, paintings, fiber art and hand painted chairs donated by local artists will be on display. Light lunch including sandwiches and beverages will be served in the Remount Executive Center kitchen. We can't wait for you to see our new facility and will be announcing our Open House date, soon.
