The Early Learning Coalition of Flagler and Volusia kicked off a partnership on March 11 with the Bunnell Police Department to bring the “Officer Friendly” Program to the city of Bunnell, according to a press release.
Each month, Bunnell Police Officers will visit selected early learning programs to read stories to preschool-aged children. Stories will focus on building children’s self-esteem, developing their social skills and creating positive relationships with police officers. ELCFV will provide each early learning program with play- based activities which will enrich their existing curriculum and extend the learning well after the officer has left the program, leaving a lasting impression on the children.
“The Bunnell Police Department is excited to be part of valuable program,” Chief Tom Foster
said in the news release. “We believe that community engagement and early intervention with our children, is an investment for the future our community. We hope to develop trust with law enforcement and continued partnership with the Early Learning Coalition of Flagler and Volusia.”
