In late March, Burton Early Learning Center had a guest volunteer come visit one of the preschool classrooms. She is a local RN who came to lead an activity on hand washing and hygiene. The preschoolers were so excited to sing Happy Birthday while scrubbing their hands with soap! Who would have thought washing your hands could be so fun? The guest volunteer even brought along a poster and coloring sheets for the class.

Child care center staff and children greatly appreciate the educational opportunities that come with community participation. Do you have a skill, hobby or activity you would like to share with one of our centers this Spring? Please contact Kayli, Early Care & Education’s Volunteer Coordinator, at (360) 952-3356 if you are interested!
