Keeping My Students Safe And Comfortable!!!

The cost of a Hanging Rest Mat System from Kaplan Early Learning Company is $946, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I work in a title one low income school with developmentally delayed students. My students begin school at the age of 3 and stay with me until they are Kindergarten age. We are very busy throughout the day and my students work so hard. Everyday we have a rest time. Their little bodies are so tired. During this time I play soft music and my student lay on mats on the floor to take naps and rest. We are under the state regulations from the Division of Child Development which require certain sizes of mats and sanitation storage for them. I know this is a big proposal but we desperately need new rest mats and proper storage for them. The ones we are using are worn out and we have no proper way to store them. I am writing this proposal for a Hanging Rest mat System. This is a set of 20 two inch mats and a storage unit with sanitary dividers. This would provide our student with a comfortable rest mats and we would be able to keep them stored proper. This is very important to our program and our students. These mats would be available to all the students in our classrooms for many many years. Thank you so much for reading and considering my proposal.
