Update our Playground and Help Us Grow and Develop

My students need an updated playground. Adding a slide, cargo net ladder, and tire swing to the playground will improve their gross motor skills.

My Students

Outdoor play is a critical part of a young child's education.The addition of a slide, cargo net ladder and tire swing to our current playground will help develop gross motor skills and improve balance. Balance plays an important part in being able to track eyes across a page when reading.

The preschool program is a new program at CCES.

The playground for the students is in need of updates. There is a wooden play structure, but it does not have a slide and the steps are not the right size for 3 and 4 year old legs. Additions to the play fort would make it a great place for the students to play and learn.

My Project

Outdoor play is so very important to the developing child. The balance skills they achieve through climbing, sliding and swinging will help them become better readers and problem solvers. The social skills students gain while playing with others will help them throughout their lives. An updated playground would make their day more enjoyable and foster the desire to be a life long learner.

The donations to this project will benefit many students this year and in years to come.

With the improvements of a slide, cargo net ladder and tire swing, made to the playground, the students will gain important gross motor skills. They will improve their strength and will gain confidence in their abilities.
