Farm to Preschool





Child Care Council of Nassau, Inc. is thrilled to be teaming up with Way to Grow this year to bring you the Long Island Farm to Preschool program. Although our program looks different this year than in past years, we are modifying our activities and hope to make a positive impact on you and your children. Since we cannot be on site as we have been in past years, we will be delivering education to children and support for center staff remotely

Long Island Farm to Preschool is funded through a SNAP-ed grant from the New York State Department of Health and aims to increase access to locally-grown
fruits and vegetables for under served areas of Long Island.
