Ordering preschool supplies every year is essential to running a quality early childhood programme. These supplies can include art supplies, curriculum materials, manipulatives, books, shelves, and other items.
Some of our preschool supplies are ordered locally but when it is more cost effective, the supplies are ordered from overseas. This year we ordered some large items from overseas in the form of shelving units for the classrooms. Good quality shelving is a key component for good classroom management as well as keeping the classroom supplies in good condition and order. The preschool supplies and shelving arrived at the end of June this year, and were stored until August when they were put into the classrooms for use in September.
The staff and children were so excited to get and use their new supplies. The new ideas and room organisation was very exciting for everyone. It really helped give them new and more improved ideas of things to do in the classroom. The supplies purchased enhance and support the curriculum, as well as the activities that the preschool children take part in every day.
Each classroom was able to replace old and damaged items with new manipulatives, games, puzzles, books, maths and science items, as well as art supplies. We were also able to replace many of the old shelving units with new ones that have rounded corners and are made of very good quality wood so they will last for a long time. The items we were able to purchase using donations help ensure that the children in our care are able to learn in an age appropriate and fun way, while still learning all that is needed to succeed in primary school. Children learn through play, and with your donation we are able to provide the best learning environment possible for them. Children are able to mimic what they see adults do every day if they are provided with the correct items. The children learn how to share, work through conflict, come up with solutions, and create their own scenarios this way. The teachers are able to use these items to work with the children both in groups and individually whilst also create lessons that help the children learn in a way that is fun. They are able to take the classroom supplies and devise hands-on activities, games, and projects that will help the children master the developmental steps necessary in order to prepare for and do well in the future.
