The children in our program mostly come from low income families who would normally not be able to afford to send their children to a high quality preschool program. We service children from diverse backgrounds. Many families are experiencing difficult situations, such as, having a parent incarcerated, being in foster care, or being raised by a grandparent or other family member. We offer a safe, secure, and loving environment for our children, as well as educational.
During the summer we provide a program where we spend a majoraity of our time outside exploring the natural world and building physical skills.
We play a lot of games to help build the children's gross motor skills and social emotional learning.
My students in my classroom need Ipads in order to have a base knowledge of how technology works in their world. Many of the children in my classroom come from low income households that do not have the extra money to buy technology. In the world we live in now children need to have access to and experience with different forms of technology in order to become successful in school and their future life. Having extra Ipads in our classroom will help our children have the access and experience they need in order to be successful in the future .
