Passport to Community

Giving Back

img

Character development is another major focus of our childcare and early preschool program. Throughout the year, each locations choose a “heart project.”  These campaigns give back to our communities both locally and globally.  The children are able to participate in hands-on activities as they pay it forward to other children in need.

Featured Heart Projects

Alex's Lemonade Stand

The mission of Alex’s Lemonade Stand is to raise money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily for research into new treatments and cures, and to encourage and empower others, especially children, to get involved and make a difference for children with cancer.

Little Dresses for Africa

The mission of Little Dresses for Africa is to provide relief to vulnerable children throughout the Continent of Africa and beyond. Each center makes little dresses out of pillow cases or other simple patterns. Children are able to help in making these and even get to see pictures of the children in Africa wearing them!

Our Heart Projects Teach:

  • What it means to be a good citizen
  • How to come together to make a difference
  • Shows them how small acts have a large impact on communities
