The first LCP School Community Grant will create a mobile sensorimotor station of roll out mats that will give preschoolers, with and without special needs, opportunities for motor movements and active play in classrooms, hallways, and therapy spaces, regardless of weather and space constraints.

“The staff and families at LCP are excited about the prospect of working with LEF to enhance our programming with new, innovative ideas and materials,” remarked Elizabeth Billings-Fouhy, Supervisor of Early Childhood Special Education.
