The Wednesday program kicks off with healthy snacks followed by outdoor play. Karma, a gorgeous golden retriever therapy dog, comes to each “Fun Day,” thanks to his generous owner, one of our special educator volunteer tutors. Karma plays Frisbee with the children and rolls over to have his silky fur patted; he’s especially loving with children who need soothing.
When parents, aunts, and uncles arrive for pick up the children eagerly share their art projects or original writing, a book they read, or the game they mastered. Families know the program is designed especially with their children in mind. Our message is indisputable: we value you and your children, and we’re pleased you’re a part of this community. Our smiles say it all.
If you have experience and enjoy working with young children and would like to join a cooperative and creative team, please fill out a volunteer form. We know volunteers are busy people but hope you will commit at least one Wednesday a month, giving you and the children a chance to get to know one another. We will provide guidance and support with particular activities and children as needed.
The Kingston City Schools require volunteers to submit references. Both the school district and St. Johns Church recommend child safety training, which is available free from St. Johns. For details, email Michele Riddell at email@example.com or text her 845-443-9821.
