KidZone receives grant

KidZone Christian Childcare Center and Preschool has received a $1,300 grant to help complete short-term projects at the center, in First Presbyterian Church on Fifth Avenue North.

The grant from Linking Families and Communities, applied for in April, has helped improve the center in the area of dramatic plays, science activities and inclusion of diversity.

Kinetic sand, books on exploration and new costumes for dramatic play are just a few examples of things they have purchased with the donation, said KidZone director Karen Lloyd.
