Humboldt Educare Preschool was founded in 1979 with the philosophy that children construct knowledge through the actions of play and that children learn best when they want to learn. For the last six years Felicia Severhill has been the director in charge of this philosophy. “I’ve worked for Humboldt Educare for the last nine years. We serve around 30 families from all over Northern Humboldt County and provide education services to children from ages two to six,” explains Felicia. Humboldt Educare was originally located at the old Equinox School, and then moved to Pacific Union Elementary in 2003. They have since moved to a building on Frank Martin Court in Arcata. “One of our primary objectives right now is to move into our own facility so that we can expand our services,” explains Felicia. “Our current primary fundraiser is our Ugly Holiday Sweater Run that will take place on December 17th on the Arcata Plaza.” This year’s run will

include a Christmas themed one-mile walk/run and a 5K run. Humboldt Educare would like to remind runners to wear their “Ugliest Sweaters” and prizes will be handed out to participants in various categories. The run starts at 10AM and will be over by 11:30AM. For more information on the race and to register, go to humboldteducare.org. Humboldt Educare would like to thank Murphy’s Market for all of their support over the years. “I hope to see a lot of the community out there on December 17th. It is our main fundraiser and is always a big hit and so much fun. I would also like to let the community know that we have openings at the preschool and for more information please give us a call.” For more information on Humboldt Educare Preschool and the 2017 Ugly Holiday Sweater Run, please visit their website, humboldteducare.org or give them a call at 707-822-6447.
