Nursery school co-op fundraising for education enhancements

Plans for outdoor classroom and sensory bin
A fundraising barbecue was held at the Legacy Co-op Grocery Friday.
YORKTON - The Yorkton Nursery School Co-operative is currently fundraising for a couple of enhancements to its programming.

The school is planning to add an outdoor classroom and a sensory bin at its location at St. Andrews United Church in the city, and Friday the group held a hotdog barbecue at the Legacy Co-op Grocery with funds going toward the dual projects.

An outdoor classroom will facilitate hands-on learning about such things as the life cycle of plants and how to grow one’s own food. When  a child learns how to grow food they will place a higher value on it.

A sensory bin helps children learn to problem solve and is an aid when children are worked up.

The school is for children ages three and four and has some 48 children, but has room for more.
