The Learning Experience®, one of the nation’s fastest growing Academies of Early Education for children six weeks to six years old, in East Windsor, N.J., raised more than $1,000 at its recent WonderWalk benefitting The March of Dimes, the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. During the WonderWalk preschoolers and their families and friends “marched” around the Academy of Early Education located at 761 Route 33 West Mercer Street in East Windsor, New Jersey.
The WonderWalk is an extension of the proprietary philanthropy-focused curriculum at The Learning Experience, which teaches the core tenets of selflessness, generosity and giving at a young age and encourages children to apply such values in the classroom, at home, and in the community. The Learning Experience’s unique philanthropy curriculum is believed to be the only nationwide curriculum of its kind.
“Beyond foundational academics which take pride in providing our students each day, we are committed to teaching the value of giving and helping those in need,” said Dhiraj Bansal, Owner of The Learning Experience in East Windsor. “It was encouraging to see the children, their families, and the community putting the same philanthropic principles we teach to action for the benefit of The March of Dimes.”
With the help of Grace The Greyhound™ and Charity Chihuahua™, the lovable and huggable dog mascots for philanthropy at The Learning Experience, the philanthropy curriculum helps teach children that it is not how big or small you are, it is the size of your heart that matters. Through animation, classroom activities and participatory songs, Grace and Charity introduce children to topics like the value of helping others, volunteering and donating.
The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. For more than 75 years, moms and babies have benefited from March of Dimes research, education, vaccines, and breakthroughs.
