My Students

Giving students learning opportunities that present themselves as play allows for greater knowledge growth. We have a group of diverse, loving, creative kids who are yearning for learning opportunities beyond those you can find in a book.

We have two classes of preschoolers ranging in age from 3 to 5 who are ready to learn and grow.

We have a nice, large space to call our school home. We love rearranging and changing our environment to reflect themes! The students help to make their space creative and fun for everyone to enjoy.

My Project

Our students love to have indoor gross motor time in the gym. Unfortunately we are limited on the materials we have to practice great motor skills such as jumping, climbing and balance.

We are asking for new tumbling mats to place in designated gym areas for the kids to practice new skills.

We would like large tri-fold mats to place under other materials for the students to safely land on the ground. The students would use the incline cheese mat to increase their height before jumping or climbing over the mailbox tumbling aid. Balancing on a low surface, such as the floor balance beam will give the students an opportunity to gain foot/eye coordination as well as balance without getting hurt.
