Volunteering at a local daycare center


Do you enjoy the energy and enthusiasm of a pre-school aged child? Would you like to help prepare these children for success when they enter elementary school? Activities will include helping children discover the joy of reading through storytelling; using flash cards, and other materials to help children identify letters, words, numbers, shapes and colors; providing guidance as the children put puzzles together, finger paint and a variety of other fun-filled activities. Assist in molding young minds. Help 4 & 5 year olds learn the skills they need to be ready for school. They also need hugs and encouragement to succeed. You can make a positive impact on the children in your community! We have opportunities available at Head Start, pre-schools and daycare centers.
