Chester Community Preschool students collected their pennies for the earthquake victims in Haiti. The children learned about how the people there need help from others.
They dropped their pennies into jars marked "Preschool Pennies for Haiti". The children learned the good feeling that comes from doing something kind for others. In doing so, they collected over $74. This money was then combined with the Green Mountain Union High School collection for Haiti.
The preschool is collaboration between the Windsor Southwest Supervisory Union and Windsor County Head Start. This is a tuition free program for any child who resides in the Windsor South West Supervisory Union area.
It is a licensed program staffed by teachers who all have degrees in education. They are NAECY accredited and were awarded five STARS in Vermont STep Ahead Recognition System. Applications for the 2010-2011 school year are now being accepted.
Please call in advance at 875-3904 to schedule a visit.
