The first few years of a child’s life is a time of incredible growth and development. Positive learning experiences in a variety of settings, such as the home and a quality childcare center, is essential. Purposeful involvement with a quality early learning program can lead to social and academic success in the future.
One of the ways Children’s Learning Adventure encourages their students to get involved is by creating community service opportunities for all their centers to participate in together. Children’s Learning Adventure has made it a point to find community service projects for their students to participate in to give them the opportunity to learn about their community and make a difference where it matters. This encourages character building and learning more about the community that surrounds them.
Each month is focused around a different community connection. Projects have included; food drives, writing letters to children’s hospitals, fundraising, and more! This November Children’s Learning Adventure organized a canned food drive where families were encouraged to donate non-perishable food items to be donated to a local food bank. Children collected, sorted, and tracked donated items throughout the month. When children are introduced to these life skills it helps equip them with the skills they need to apply it outside of the classroom.
