3rd Quarter Training Tracks-Kaua'i

October was PATCH Kaua'i’s busiest month with some outreach events where we were able to showcase PATCH to the community at the Princess Ka’iulani Keiki Festival, to the Grand Hyatt employees, and to caregivers at the ‘Ohana Caregivers Conference.

PATCH welcomes new Kauai Coordinator Mary Lu Kelley. She has lived on Kauai for the past 28 years and was a former Director for Child & Family Service Healthy Start Program. Mary Lu loves the work of PATCH, supporting the 0-5 population and their wonderful care givers.

We will all miss Cathy Shanks who has been the brilliant Coordinator and team leader for PATCH Kauai for the past 10 years.  Cathy is retiring to spend more time with her family, especially her 2 grandchildren. A GREAT BIG MAHALO TO CATHY for her years of dedication and service to PATCH, the keiki and caregivers of Kauai.


As the year draws to a close, PATCH Kaua'i sends our thanks to all of the families that have contacted us for assistance in finding child care, to all of the licensed Family and Group Child Care Homes and Group Child Care Centers (Preschools) who work so diligently with PATCH, to the Kaua'i United Way for the funding that supports special support programs for Providers and to the Hawai'i Hotel Association Visitor Industry Charity Walk for funding to support new computers so we can service everyone efficiently and comprehensively.

A special mahalo goes out to LaVonne Pironti, our Kauai representative on the PATCH Board of Representatives, for joining us at our annual Tom Copeland workshop on "The Business of Child Care".
