My Students

Our school is a federal child care program that services children from low income families get ready for kindergarten, and enter at a higher level.

Our activities focus on building more self-esteem for each student, and by helping children and their families work together to come up with solutions to problems.

Our program has strong education components. We provide extra stimulation and experiences, and social skills that help prepare children for formal education in kindergarten and beyond.

Our students focus on learning through play and having choices about their day and their lives.

My Project

All of our students love to play pretend in the kitchen and dramatic play center. The Play Market will be a great addition to our dramatic play center. They love to make food for their friends, their teachers and help feed their play babies.

With this new kitchen furniture, our students will be able to learn how a market works, by selling fruits and vegetables, like having their own farmer's market.

They will learn to foster their imagination and use their social skills while making friends and playing with others. The Play Market is an excellent tool for teaching the skills my students need to enter kindergarten. We also need Let's Go Shopping Fruit Basket and Let's Go Shopping Grocery Baskets.
