Preschool Puppet Fun
School: Lakeview Early Childhood Center
A big part of the preschool day is spent learning to navigate the complex social scenarios that young children encounter daily. Children need a safe, comfortable way to express their ideas, emotions and feelings in a non-threatening way. Puppets provide the perfect tool to facilitate those learning processes. Puppets are engaging toys that can help support oral language skills and communication, social/emotional development, and help children learn about and understand the world around them. With the help of this grant I will be able to supply a wide variety of quality puppets, ensuring that every child can find just the right “character” to help them solve those tough social puzzles that they encounter in their real-life situations.
