Info about the The Right Start: Improving Kindergarten Resources

With this project, we will improve practices at the local kindergarten by two means: supplying kindergarteners with necessary tables and chairs and improving the teachers’ knowledge of developmentally appropriate activities. We will provide an interactive workshop to all kindergarten workers based on a Child Development Activities Guide that each worker will receive. The guide includes interactive activities for children that are geared directly toward developmental goals, encouraging the staff to learn hands-on activities that benefit the children’s physical, mental, and social development. The teachers will expand their knowledge of learning tools and learn that “seated” does not need to mean “boring” and “active” does not need to mean “crazy.”

Parents and community members have contributed their own funds to purchase this equipment and have also collected money for a Repair Fund should any of the equipment become damaged. Additionally, the mayor’s office will contribute all transport costs and office supplies. Each of the kindergarten workers will purchase an Activities Guide that they will be able to utilize throughout their career.

With the completion of this project, the kindergarten will be better equipped to support the children’s optimal development. The staff will be better able to recognize the benefits of interactive learning and will be able to refer to their own interactive workshop when reviewing the Activities Guide in years to come.
