KCAA’s Center for Early Education and Development Receives Grant from First Hawaiian Bank Foundation
KCAA Preschools of Hawai'i has been awarded a $50,000 grant from the First Hawaiian Bank (FHB) Foundation over a two-year period to support the final phase of the Center for Early Education and Development (CEED) construction.
Last November KCAA began construction of the CEED on the Mother Rice campus in Moiliili. This technologically advanced training center will expand opportunities for professional development for early educators, including both KCAA and non-KCAA staff, and will help address the shortage of qualified early educators in Hawaii.
“FHB Foundation recognizes that education of keiki in our community is a priority,” said Robert Harrison, FHB’s chief executive officer. “We know that this grant is necessary for the advancement of quality early education in Hawaii, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to support future generations.
