Sha na na na na na na, feeling washable sensory materials... which are groovy.
Cienega High school's Early Childhood Education program teaches high school students to work with younger students at the Vail Inclusive Preschool. Jennifer Jepson at Cienega High asked Rotary LOCAL for washable sensory materials which enhance preschoolers fine motor skills and allow for learning through play. The Rincon Rotary and the Cienega Rotary partnered to deliver these items which will not only help the preschoolers, but also the Cienega High students who will be administering the lessons.
Rincon Rotary's support is part of its Rotary LOCAL program, whose mission is to help improve the local community through educational outreach. Rotary LOCAL can provide manpower, resources from local business partners, or in some cases, direct financial support to teachers who apply for assistance.
