Reaching Out

Reaching Out

We recently added a link to the resources page on our website for The Acme Sharing Company, a blog about family activities with meaning. It is a wonderful place to find ideas that help children become aware of the needs of others while having a lot fun. At Especially for Children, we believe community outreach is an important part of a child’s development. Our centers have found some creative ways to teach children about community involvement through participation in pajama drives, book drives and food drives. At some of our centers, children spend time visiting local senior care centers. We believe the lessons from these experiences will help children develop a sense of caring for others.

Have you had special experiences with your child(ren) doing community outreach? If so, please share them!
