Thank You, Boulder Area Alumnae Panhellenic
Today, we’d like to thank Boulder Area Alumnae Panhellenic for its generous grant in support of Imagine!’s Dayspring Community Calendar Activities.
Dayspring’s Community Calendar Activities introduces families with young children who have developmental disabilities or delays to places in our community that offer great activities and opportunities for children to meet their goals through fun and play. All activities encourage motor, sensory, social-emotional, cognitive, and speech-language development.
Each location has activities that are age and developmentally appropriate. Activities are centered around play, because play is the primary vehicle for a child’s mental and physical growth. Play has a vital role in cognitive, speech-language, physical, emotional and social development.
Much of young children’s learning takes place when they direct their own play. Learning occurs as children touch, manipulate, experiment and talk about things, while interacting with people who facilitate without directing. During play, children are provided with sensory experiences and opportunities to move. Young children need to climb, run, jump and challenge themselves motorically. Children are natural explorers and instinctively touch, taste, hear, and observe the world around them.
Boulder Area Alumnae Panhellenic enhances the fraternity system through scholarship awards, annual educational informational functions for prospective college freshman, philanthropic projects, community participation and civic leadership. They are longtime supporters of Imagine! and Dayspring, and host an annual Sensory Friendly day at Santa’s House during the holidays for kids receiving services from Dayspring.
Thank you, Boulder Area Alumnae Panhellenic, for your demonstrated commitment to your community and all of its members.
