Having a comfortable classroom is essential for productive learning, especially for energetic preschoolers. Teacher Jessie Nevius at Furstenau Early Childhood Center in DeWitt, MI, wanted to create a comfortable classroom for her students by replacing old metal chairs with light moveable ones that encouraged independence for her students, and light covers that dimmed the harsh fluorescent lighting.
PNC Grow Up Great Foundation has distributed millions of dollars in grants to organizations that support early childhood education like CACS Head Start. Head Start and PNC in Michigan have worked together closely over the years. During the month of April PNC Grow Up Great Foundation is matching every dollar Nevius raises in donations to replace the furniture for her students. This April PNC is matching any donations raised by teachers up to $1,500.
