My Students

Our students attend a public school early childhood program located in an elementary school building. We have two prekindergarten teachers who educate up to 80 children per day.

Our students are learning and growing so quickly!

They are enthusiastic about school and developing new skills. Program requirements are that the children have to be four years old to be in our program and they will all be attending kindergarten the following year. We have a diverse group of students in our program. Our goal is to prepare them for success in kindergarten.

My Project

We need resources for fitness and fun in the gym during our long, cold Minnesota winters! We stay inside when the weather outside is frightful! There are many rainy, snowy and below zero days in Minnesota. We have a large gym and need additional equipment for skill development.

They love to use balls to help them learn to throw, catch and kick.

Social skills will be learned when they share, play games and play catch with the balls. The will learn team work during group ball activities. We can play many different games with the balls.

The children will benefit from the wrist ribbons when they dance and make letters and numbers in the air with the ribbons.
