At Foundations For Learning Family Day Care, we believe that community involvement benefits both the charities/organizations that we support and the students/ families in our school. By encouraging young children and their families to participate in our outreach efforts we strive to:

  • Create meaningful connections with community members
  • Teach a sense of responsibility
  • Teach students that one person can make a difference
  • Teach tolerance and know that diverse individuals can be united by common cause
  • Help students learn early job skills (counting money, organizing activities, and working as a team)
  • Provide services and materials to those in need

 

Foundations For Learning in the Glastonbury and South Windsor COMMUNITIES:

We participate and support many local and national charities. Some of our outreach efforts include:

  • Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Research

We put together a teacup raffle with prizes donated by local businesses, a concession stand run by students, games run by our child care and preschool teachers, demonstrations by local performers, and information booths from local organizations.
