To watch the smiles and hear the laughter of the children

The cost of Playground Activity Center is $7440, 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 am a teacher at PS 319 in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. My school is a wonderful small early childhood center. We have approximately 180 children, between the ages of 4 to 6. Our community has very limited resources for outdoor play. The families are of low income. Many of the children have never been to a park, and are unaware of the various things to do, and play with at this location. We would like to create a child-friendly, safe playground for our children where they can have daily exercise opportunities. Their is a high rate of asthma in our community, and many of our children have this breathing disorder. In addition, many of them are overweight. By the installation of a playground at our school, we can give them an opportunity for daily exercise to offset the asthma and obesity problem. Many of the children in our school are also very shy and timid, and many are English language learners. A playground would afford them the opportunity to socialize, interact, and develop their oral language skills in a safe environment. The installation of a playground area would be a great addition to our school and enhance our students health and leaning. Thank you for your interest in our school.
