BABYLON, NY (April 27, 2012) – This week, the three and four year old students at the Babylon United Methodist Church Nursery School participated in Block Day. To help raise awareness of the needs in our community, each child brought in a box of cereal and together they built a towering structure to block out hunger.
The United Methodist Nursery School collected 128 boxes of cereal which will be distributed by the local food pantries.
“The children enjoyed this event very much,” said teacher Karen Garsils. “Not only did they demonstrate cooperative learning skills and problem solving skills while building the structure, they learned how important it is to help others in our community who are in need.”
The school, now in its 41st year, serves 145 families, some with more than one child in the program. The school offers programs for 2 1/2 , 3 and 4 year olds in age-appropriate learning settings.
