Preschool Power Boost

Help me give my students replenished classroom materials and some new games to play.

My Students

My school is a public blended preschool program. We serve students from all over Champaign who qualify by either having a special need or enough factors to put them at risk for school failure in the future. My classes are very diverse. We have around 15 languages at our school. We serve all range of abilities and socioeconomic backgrounds. We see such incredible growth each year!

It is an incredible privilege to guide young minds in learning, and as a donor, you would take part in that amazing growth.

My Project

Our classroom loves playing with small toys, but they often go missing for one reason or another. I'd love to replenish our Lego people and squigz, both of which are very popular! Our smock collecting needs some beefing up, as well as our game selection.

When our classroom is stocked, our children can focus on learning and playing, exactly what children should be doing!

Thank you for helping our students come to a place where learning experiences are exciting, aplenty, and engaging. The right materials can help a child through a bad day, or reach that next level of development.
