My Students

Our students come from various backgrounds and situations. All of the families that we serve are under 100% of the federal poverty guidelines. Several of our students are being raised by someone other than their birth parents; grandparents, great grandparents, aunts/uncles, etc. Our number one goal in our program is to make each child feel safe and loved while they are in our care. This is so important because so many of our students come from unstable homes and/or unsafe conditions.

We strive to give our students the best environment for learning that we can.

We are a federally funded program and have limited funds to use as we plan different lessons and activities. We want to provide our students with challenging, but fun activities that promote their learning and keep them excited about education. Our students are very resilient and they strive to do their best each and every day that they come to school!

My Project

My students need new materials for the dramatic play center to encourage them to explore their imagination! Having a new set of baby dolls that are diverse will open my students to a multicultural experience in which they see babies of various backgrounds and ethnicities! Also, adding a cash register and groceries as well as a set of food will help my students learn how to go to the store and shop for their groceries! Having a positive experience in dramatic play is vital to my students.

Students are able to learn how to problem solve, express their emotions and begin to self-regulate themselves when playing in a dramatic play center.

It is a no brainer that these materials are a necessity for a successful dramatic play!
