Webster Early Learning Center Receives Additional Playground Equipment
“Promoting Community Helpers through Play” is the name of a project for which the Legacy Community Foundation and Webster PTO granted funding to Webster Early Learning Center. Webster has six early childhood classrooms serving approximately 200 three and four year old children.
The purpose of this project is to introduce community helper roles and awareness through dramatic play opportunities. The world that children are growing up in is very different from the world 20 years ago. Children are in contact with many people in their lives. Our community service people are ones that we want them to identify as “friends”.
The grant helped fund a police car, fire truck and a school bus in the playground to encourage developmental play to increase awareness of the role that these service persons provide our community. The goal is for children to identify community service people who would be able to help them in various situations. Children would be able to utilize the equipment and act out various real life situations such as a fire truck going to a fire, a police car assisting with a car accident or assisting with a flat tire. Children would be able to role play as a bus driver, police man, or a firefighter.
Thank you Legacy Community Foundation and Webster PTO for your generosity.
