JRC Learning Centers reopens in June of 2020 during the pandemic!
The JRC Learning Center reopened the doors of the center on June 1, 2020. This was such a wonderful day as we reunited our children and teachers in person. We realized on that day how important the relationships between the children and each other has been affecting them through this pandemic.
The first day back a little boy named Mark came into the center and upon walking in the front door asked where Curtis was? His teacher Angel, crushed his world when she told him he was moved to another room (social distancing). Mark said “man I need to talk to him”!
So JRC teachers jumped into action Alyssa, Kaylee and Angel figured out a way to make it happen. They did a FaceTime call with them on their phones. They talked for about 15 minutes. When it was time to go they both said “I love you man”. It was so cute and emotional for everyone involved. When the call ended Curtis responded “I love him and miss him and he is my favorite brother because they became brothers”.
“What a bond these two have from completely different worlds” stated the teachers. “They do not see color - just a friend they really missed”!
At JRC connections are made between the children which last for a lifetime
