San Geronimo Valley Healthy Community Collaborative Presents:
Kathleen Tabor, Principal, Tabor Consulting
Wednesday, November 18 at 3:30-5:pm
Children who receive quality early preschool education are much more likely to succeed socially, emotionally and academically once they enter kindergarten and move on in school. But not all children in Marin County are offered the advantage of attending preschool because of a variety of factors including the cost and availability of services.
Kathleen Tabor, Principal, Tabor Consulting will be the guest speaker at the next meeting of the San Geronimo Valley Healthy Community Collaborative on Wednesday, November 18 at 3:30-5:pm She will be making a presentation and answering questions about Strong Start, an early childhood education initiative.
Kathy has 30 years experience providing strategic consultation to public and private nonprofit sector organizations, educational institutions, foundations and broad coalitions, networks and associations. With her clients, she engages diverse sectors of the community to illuminate issues, define strategic priorities and build shared vision, community commitment and accountability toward social justice change.
She is the acting director of MarinKids, a children's advocacy organization devoted to expanding equity of opportunity for all children in Marin to be healthy and succeed in school. MarinKids is the backbone organization for the Marin Strong Start movement. Marin Strong Start is aimed at expanding access to quality childcare, preschool and healthcare for children in Marin.
For more than 10 years, Ms. Tabor has provided strategic consultation to First 5 Marin and initiated MarinKids in 2010.
The San Geronimo Valley Healthy Community Collaborative is a monthly gathering of community members, nonprofits, businesses, faith organizations, County agencies and others. The group meets monthly to discuss issues of common interest to Valley residents. Everyone is welcome. For more information call Suzanne at 415-488-8888, ext. 251 or e-mail email@example.com.
