Great Bay Kids' Granted Funds for Dental Education

7/27/2017

Portsmouth, NH  - Great Bay Kids' Company, a non-profit early education center and school age provider with over 50 years of service in Exeter, Portsmouth, Newmarket & Newfields, was recently awarded a $5,000 grant from the Northeast Delta Dental Foundation to provide dental education and awareness to students.

Great Bay Kids' Company serves over 600 children in the Seacoast of New Hampshire. Not only are our early education programs award winning, but we strive to educate our children in a combination of areas including, health and exercise, healthy eating and preventative healthcare- including Oral Hygiene education and awareness. Grant funding will focus on educational speakers and presenters specializing in youth and incorporate tools, techniques and supplies to establish and continue the healthy oral health habits gained from the program. Children, teachers, staff, parents and community members will be invited to all presentations.

Executive Director Katelyn Dennis is elated with this generous grant; “We couldn’t be more grateful of Northeast Delta Dental Foundation for recognizing our programming and supporting early education! We are happy to be working with the community to educate and teach oral hygiene to the children. 

They are already benefiting from these presentations and learning to take care of themselves! This grant from the Northeast Delta Dental Foundation is a perfect fit for our non-profit organization.”

According to nationwide statistics, every dollar invested in early childhood development nets an average $7 return in productivity and saved societal costs.  

Great Bay Kids’ Company relies on the generosity of others as we fulfill our mission of providing quality early childhood care and education for our youngest children and school age enrichment programs for over 600 children and families that we serve within the Greater Seacoast area of New Hampshire.
