Albany Community Action Partnership received a grant from the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region to support programs for healthy living in our Early Head Start program at 25 Monroe St. and 170 Ontario St. Early Head Start supports children 6 weeks to 3 years of age and their families. Funds will be used to obtain supplies and equipment to address childhood obesity through the I Am Moving I Am Learning (IMIL) framework. The strategies included in IMIL fit seamlessly into what our programs are already doing to meet the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework. Through IMIL, programs increase the level of physical activity and emphasize healthy nutrition choices for children, families, and staff. IMIL is dynamic with participants actively learning through movement and song.
