The Whole Child approach says that in order to succeed academically and in life, children need to be safe, healthy, engaged, supported, and challenged.  It promotes partnership among schools and community resources to realize these goals (see http://www.wholechildeducation.org/ and http://www.ascd.org/whole-child.aspx). 

 

Public libraries positively impact children in all five areas identified in the Whole Child approach. Libraries have a great deal to offer toward realizing the Whole Child vision.  And libraries are on the radar of the team that has planned the upcoming Ohio Whole Child Symposium, taking place in Cincinnati on April 21-22: http://tinyurl.com/ohascd-wc2016

 

The Symposium will focus on schools as community and neighborhood hubs that not only address the needs of the whole child but improve outcomes for the whole neighborhood.  It includes an opportunity for attendees to visit various Cincinnati Public Schools buildings. From these visits, attendees will see that embracing the Whole Child philosophy can improve academic outcomes for children and economic opportunities for neighborhoods.

 

Registration for the Symposium is $150/person ($100 each for teams of 4+) and includes 2 lunches, 1 dinner, and all materials.  If you are interested, you may find further information and a registration form here:
