"We are pleased to be able to support Indiana child care providers in ways that improve the health and safety of Hoosier children," said BCC Director Melanie Brizzi. "This playground project has impacted well over 10,000 young children who are now benefiting from safer, more enriching outdoor play areas."
Indiana BCC received the award for its efforts in providing American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grants of up to $5000 to licensed child care centers and homes, as well as registered ministries that have obtained their Voluntary Certification Program Recognition (VCP). These funds were used by the child care sites to improve safety and add developmentally appropriate playground equipment to help ensure that children are receiving opportunities for active outdoor play.
