Special Thanks

Mini Scholars Child Care Center would like to thank the Ouachita Parish School System for their collaboration in making a successful year. We would also like to thank the Department of Children and Family Services in partnership with the Department of Education and BrightStart for providing us with the Diverse Delivery Grant which gave the children the opportunity to become young, developing authors enriching the hearts and the minds of the future.
