QCH Partners with Women for Afghan Women to Provide Caregiver Workshops for New Immigrants

From January 10 to 12, QCH's Queens Childcare Network (QCCN) partnered with Women for Afghan Women (WAW) to provide three "Caregiver Seminars" for newly arrived immigrant parents from Afghanistan. WAW is a nonprofit dedicated to protecting and promoting the rights of disenfranchised Afghan women and girls in Afghanistan and the United States. During the workshops, QCCN staff reviewed milestones for child development, recommended nutrition guidelines, and explained common academic and socio-emotional challenges that parents should be aware of.

"The series was a great success," said Dawn Mastoridis, QCCN Director. "Our team was happy to pass along new information and critical concepts on caregiving for Afghan women." QCCN was issued a letter of appreciation and support from WAW for this unique collaborative effort.
