Bradford-Tioga Head Start, Inc. recognizes foster grandparents

Daily Review (Pa.)

Bradford-Tioga Head Start, Inc. partners with the Foster Grandparent program, directed by the Area Agency on Aging, to have Foster Grandparents in early childhood education classrooms. This partnership began in 2000 and continues to flourish today. The Foster Grandparent program provides a way for volunteers age 55 and over to stay active by serving children and youth in their communities.

In the Bradford-Tioga Head Start classrooms, Foster Grandparents are role models, mentors, and friends to children in every classroom. They are assigned to work with children who can use a little extra help and provide one-on-one tutoring; however, they are really a “grandparent” to all of the children in the classroom.
