Community is everything. We like to think of the communities we serve as extended members of our families, and for that reason, we take pride in being able to give back a little. We recently donated rugs and carpet tiles to a school and day cares throughout Wisconsin.
A Milwaukee Area school was our first stop for the summer, where we donated carpet tiles for alternative seating options in a classroom. The students’ teacher, Caitlin Fitzgerald, tells us that she is trying the carpet tiles out for summer school & will hopefully continue it into the school year. It’s called “flexible seating.” Flexible seating gives children the choice of where they’d like to sit, instead of having them sit at a desk for hours on end. Caitlin has the group gather on a large carpet, gives instructions, & then allows students to choose from a variety of seating choices to do their work. Some of the choices include chairs, pillows, exercise balls, & carpet squares. Thank you, Caitlin, for letting us donate to your classroom!
We then made our way to Friendly Frogs Day Care in Platteville, WI to donate a rug. Friendly Frogs has been open for 6 years, and is owned by Brenna Carns. The facility & staff were both incredible! If you make it to the Dairy Days parade in Platteville in September, keep an eye out for the Friendly Frogs float that the kids & staff make together! Friendly Frogs uses rugs to indicate different stations for play & learning. Thanks for letting us stop by to donate today, we hope your kiddos enjoy the rug!
We also stopped by Quality Time Day Care in Platteville, WI to donate a rug! Owner, Jennifer Roepsch told us that the kids use the rug to lay on to read books. We’re so glad that the kids are getting good use out of it! Thanks for letting us stop by! (Check out how awesome that playground is, wow!!)
Our last stop was at Just 4 Kidz Day Care in Cuba City, WI. The kids were busy playing, so we weren’t able to get any pictures at the time, but we hope the kids enjoy their rug!
