My Students

My students are full of eagerness to learn, adventure, and lots of energy. These preschoolers love coming to school each day and come ready to explore and learn new things.

The most important thing I want my students to learn is how to be kind and caring towards one another.

Our preschool classroom is located in a high school. We have high school students come in and learn about child development as well as create and teach lessons to our students.

My Project

Our students love and enjoy being outside. Playing outside is a huge part of learning and developing for a preschool student. Due to the fact that our classroom is located in a high school we do not have any outdoor play equipment.

My students need equipment where they can explore, pretend and strengthen their muscles.

This requested Step2 Clubhouse Climber will help our students get some energy out during outdoor play. There are so many benefits to outdoor play such as an outlet for anxiety and stress, it keeps children healthy and reduces obesity, and play enhances all areas of development. I want my students to have the best foundation in their early childhood education experience that will last throughout their whole educational career.
