My students need a comfortable couch and chair where they can sneak away to a quiet place and enjoy a good book.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Head Start is a program that promotes school readiness for low-income families by enhancing their social, emotional and cognitive skills. We are a program that realizes that the parents are the first and the most important teacher, and we as Head Start teachers are there to assist them.
My students are very intelligent and are eager to learn.
My main focus is to help provide them with the tools that they need to be successful. I feel that they all can be successful!
I would love to add comfortable seating in my classroom. A warm classroom environment promotes a sense of security as well as a sense of pride for their class. Having a place to get away in a soft cozy area, reading their favorite book, can increase academic achievement and improve social and emotional skills.
A safe and nurturing environment is an important part of learning and development.
It also helps prevent challenging behaviors. A child needs a place to retreat when things get too hectic, or when the child becomes tired. A new couch and chair would be that special place to help us achieve these goals.
