The handsome shade structure is a welcome addition to our 1’s and 2’s playground making outdoor play time safer and more enjoyable. Funds for the project came from the state ABC Quality Program which helps preschools to improve quality learning, health and safety. Of the $10,335 in funding provided to our school in 2016, $8500 was used to purchase and install the shade, $1035 to purchase eight tricycles for use on the new tricycle track, and $800 to add more tumble safe mulch for our playgrounds. The green 20’ X 30’ shade structure was installed by Churchich Recreation in November.
In the true spirit of the day, fifteen Clemson students spent the morning of January 16 enthusiastically serving at our center! They cleaned classroom shelves, chairs, toys, rugs and sleeping mats; added mulch to the playground; painted the hallway; organized closets; and decorated bulletin boards. They accomplished a lot in three hours and we greatly appreciate it!
