Featured School: Burbank Preschool Center in Oakland, CA

Burbank_collageBurbank Preschool Center serves special and general education students birth to six years old in Oakland Unified School District. They are a fully inclusive preschool program committed to providing the best possible early intervention program to their special and general education students and families. The mission at Burbank Preschool Center is to help all their students reach their greatest potential by approaching each child with optimism, respect, and care and engaging each child in learning as a unique and capable individual.

To date, Burbank has raised almost $1,500 with Schoola, and with an upcoming clothing drive, they’re on track to raise even more. They’ll be using the funds to replenish art supplies, buy outdoor gear like balls and hula hoops, and purchase super interactive Barefoot Books.

The supplies Burbank will be able to buy with their Schoola funds are invaluable for their student body. Many of their kids enjoy art because it wakes up their sensory needs and makes them less tactile defensive while building their motor skills. Outdoor activities include getting a little dirty, which can be a hard hurdle for special needs children, and having fun play equipment makes this easier. Through art and play, they’re able to express themselves nonverbally, develop, and grow.
