Through the Covid-19 pandemic crisis, the Leadership Learning Center has continued to provide in-person services to students in the community. Currently, the LLC is serving 72 students in-person full-day from 8 AM - 6 PM following all CDC and Health Department Guidelines. This much-needed child care service is an essential component for families in our community to allow the continuation of employment, thus support the family economic stability. An equally engaging virtual program has been developed to reach students staying home with educational activities including STEM, Arts, Physical Education, Literacy and Social-Emotional Learning.
The cost of operating full-day has nearly doubled due to the lower staff-child ratio required by CDC in addition to sanitation equipment and procedures. The funds collected from GiveMiami Day will help pay additional expenses incurred by the additional services to open full-day 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM while public school remain virtual. LLC is open is to receive food, clothing and monetary donations from collaborators to assist struggling families.
