Board Member Cathy Bos  


As a member of SCAN's Board of Directors for close to 8 years, Cathy Bos has been an essential member to SCAN on many levels within the organization. Cathy continues to play a major role in fundraising events, not only with support for existing events, but continually providing opportunities for new events.


Cathy was first introduced to SCAN about 10 years ago as a dinner guest at the annual Progressive Dinner. It was a great first introduction to SCAN and after attending for a few years, Cathy decided to become more involved as an auction committee member. Since that time, Cathy has been an engaged and valuable member of SCAN. "The more I have become involved with SCAN, the more I learn about what work is being done throughout the community and the impact it has." Said Cathy.


During her time on the Board she has held positions on a number of different committees and spearheaded such events at Taste, Surf & Snout, and SCAN's participation in Fire, Flour, & Fork. Always ready with ideas and support for upcoming events, Cathy gained much experience as an original Board Member for Noah's Children, a local non-profit organization that is the only pediatric hospice in Central Virginia. After her work to help start this organization, Cathy held positions as the Development Director and Executive Director.

SCAN's Circle Preschool and the Reggio Emilia Approach


The Circle Preschool Program is based on internationally recognized best practices in early childhood education. The preschool staff bases much of their work on the Reggio Emilia Approach, which places importance on children acquiring the skills of critical thinking and collaboration. Educators develop curriculums based on each child's specific interests, emphasizing both the environment in which a child learns, and the social environment created by caregivers, staff, and peers.


 "When we are curious about a child's words and our responses to those words, the child feels respected. The child is respected: 'What are these ideas I have that are so interesting to the teacher? I must be somebody with good ideas.' " says author Vivian Paley.


Each day, the staff of the Circle Preschool engages each child's learning involving their great ideas and special interests. They often take a question or idea from a child and build that into a learning experience or project.
