United Way Impact Grants
In 2017, Winchester Day Nursery will receive a $15,000 grant for a comprehensive school readiness program and scholarships with the end result being improved PALS scores and better success in Kindergarten as measured by the Kindergarten SOL’s. Many students need extensive early childhood experiences to provide needed academic and social skills as they enter school. To give all students the very best education possible, excellent training for our staff and current, quality educational tools to facilitate learning is needed. All classrooms are and will continue to be designed to create an optimum learning environment. All classrooms have daily lessons posted on the parent board for parents to view. Lesson plans cover areas of reading, math, and science with an emphasis on hands on experiences to facilitate learning. Appropriate learning materials will be purchased for the Center with an emphasis on areas of concern on the Kindergarten SOL’s. Materials wil be purchased that will target these areas through a play-based approach to learning. Staff will receive training to increase their skills and focus on instruction that will make a significant difference in our children’s progress toward school readiness. A large part of our funding goes toward scholarships as many families are financially unable to provide a Preschool education for their child. Winchester Day Preschool is able to utilize the funds that are received to ensure that they are able to provide a high quality preschool education to children from families of all income levels as every child is deserving of a preschool education and a successful start into the school system.
