St. Mark Kids First Charitable Giving Fund

St. Mark Preschool has created the St. Mark Kids First Charitable Giving Fund to enhance the school’s learning environment and enrollment. The fund will be used to enrich the preschool experience while providing endless opportunities for young children.

Green space will be added to help children develop interpersonal and social skills in an outdoor setting. Children will also have the capability of learning the value of exercise in a fun, yet safe, atmosphere. The preschool will utilize this green space in order to cultivate gross motor skills that are essential for kindergarten readiness.

St. Mark Kids First Charitable Giving Fund will also encourage the learning of skills in a Christian-based atmosphere with caring individuals. The children serviced in this preschool are of a variety of socioeconomic statuses and have varied needs. For these reasons, St. Mark Preschool has many opportunities to positively impact not only children, but whole families by providing a holistic family approach to learning.

The St. Mark Kids First Charitable Giving Fund established with the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend ensures that children from a wide array of backgrounds are equipped with the skills necessary to enter grade school.
