Little Explorers Day Care in Drumheller got a nice surprise on March 2.
Janelle Storch from Little Explorers explains,
"Little Explorers is a not for profit company, which most people don't know; so when Canalta Cares came to us and said they would like to donate toys and different types of supplies, it was very much needed at this point."
Amber Hodgson from the Canalta Cares program approached Storch to get a list of things that they need for the daycare. Little Explorers received plasma cars, parachutes, balls, ribbons and lots of art supplies for the kids.
Storch says,"We do rely on people for donations for some of our stuff, and with 90 children playing with it constantly; things get worn out very quickly."
The kids enjoy a full gymnasium for playtime as well as outdoor discovery activities. Little Explorers offers before and after school care, as well as drop in services for children aged 0-12 years old.
Storch explained, "Little Explorers has been open since September 2011, we are about 7 years old now. We are growing by leaps and bounds every year; and we are pretty much at capacity right now, which is great for us."
Storch would like to thank Canalta Cares for their generous donation, and says that it couldn't have come at a better time for them.
