The Marvel Center

Our partners at The Marvel Center have been building a culture of early childhood development  to address the burden of not having a childcare facility within 300 miles within the Meadow-River Valley. In addition to opening the center during a pandemic, Marvel's hardworking board and staff have recently partnered with WVU Extension Service to host Apprenticeship Child Development Specialist (ACDS) class, This 4-semester, workforce development course is an established pathway for early child educator professional development allowing educators to move from an entry level Aide to a Teacher certification. The majority of Marvel’s instructors and a number from the Greenbrier County school system will be attending.

Additionally, they recently received a Community Connections grant to open a Family Support Center at Marvel which will provide direct services, parenting support, and mental health support to families in the community.
