The McLean Rotary Club awarded the Children’s Center a generous $2,150 grant at its meeting on Tuesday, June 20. The funds will be used to purchase special teaching kits to help young children build their English language and Social-Emotional Skills that are essential to be ready for kindergarten.

“We’re very grateful to the McLean Rotary Club for this grant that will provide our preschool teachers the tools they need to engage young children in activities that will build their fundamental language and social-emotional skills,” Executive Director Elizabeth Page told Rotarians.

The Children’s Center was able to acquire additional curriculum kits with this grant from McLean Rotary Club and a grant from the McLean Community Foundation made earlier this year. The Children’s Center’s education program is structured on the research-based Creative Curriculum that guides children to build essential academic, social and physical skills through teacher-led lessons and child’s hands-on exploration of a variety of familiar topics such as trees, building, clothing and balls. Each lesson weaves in language, literacy, pre-math, cognitive, social-emotional and physical skills designed to help each child attain expected skill levels for incoming kindergartners to be ready for success in school.
