"Let’s Play School” Toolkits – Time to get ready for kindergarten!

I received a wonderful, unexpected surprise in my e-mail box on Monday: Melissa, a mother who received one of our Smart Beginnings “Let’s Play School” toolkits, sent me a follow-up note and photos.  

From Melissa (mom) about her son:

“Thanks so much for the school kit, K. had a blast with it.  I’m sending you a couple of pictures to show you how happy he is!

(PS..K. brought me his scissors to use a bit ago saying, “here mom, you can use MY scissors this time!”) Just too cute.  The DVDs are wonderful as well, he loves the schoolbus!”

Thanks so much!   Melissa

It warmed my heart.  Thanks to the support from Women United, Dominion Virginia Power, Virginia Early Childhood Foundation and Day of Caring volunteers, we were able to produce toolkits to assist children and families prepare for kindergarten.  The English and Spanish toolkits went to children not enrolled in quality early learning programs.
