Promoting Healthy Child Development Through Play and Exercise is Crucial!

My students need some additional materials and equipment for the Pre-K/Kindergarten playground area to help develop sensory and gross motor muscle movements. They need bicycles, sand and water center, helmets, etc.

My Students

My students are a young, active, and vibrant group of children who deserve a well-rounded early childhood experience. They are currently learning how to socialize and play with their peers appropriately. They spend part of their day in our classroom engaging in learning experiences and another portion of the day outside at the playground area. Currently, we have plenty of materials to use indoors but need some additional outdoor playground equipment.

My students come from a very rural and hilly area where there are no safe sidewalks to ride bicycles on.

For some children, this is the only opportunity that they have to learn how to ride a bicycle on a flat, safe surface.

Many years ago we had an outdoor sand table that the children loved playing in, but, unfortunately, it got old and weathered, so we are in desperate need of a new sand and water table that the children will be able to enjoy!

My Project

A large portion of our day is spent outdoors in the playground area. The children use this important time to run, play, and socialize. Play is essential when it comes to development because it contributes to cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being of children. I am requesting some additional bicycles since we currently only have two, and they are a very popular item among the children. I am also requesting a sand and water table that can be used outdoors, since it is such an important piece of equipment to help children practice fine motor and engage in sensory play.
