My Students

My students are Head start children that are primarily from low income families. They are from a small town. We are rUn by a nonprofit that does not have a huge budget. Without our program many of our children would not have the opportunity to attend a preschool. Our goal is to have a loving, caring and safe environment where our children can explore and learn. This is the first school experience many of our children have had so we want to make it as successful as we can so they can have a great start to their school career.

My Project

Our children need comfortable seating for our reading area. Exposure to books and literature is so important for preschool children. Many of our children have not had much experience with books since many are from low income. Many of our parents are working hard and do not always have time to sit down a read with their child. This makes it even more important for us to read while they are in our care. We need to provide some comfortable seating so they will want to go spend time in the book area. Please help us fund three couches for our reading are.
