We’re All Special Disabilities Program

The children at Sunshine Corners participated in Schreiber Pediatric Rehab Center’s We’re All Special program.  A representative from Schreiber came to visit the children and teach them about children with disabilities.  They shared a video, pictures and other information with our toddlers and preschoolers.  The children also had the opportunity to try some of the same equipment that the children with disabilities use. In addition to the visit from Schreiber, all of the children in the center participated in the We’re All Special hop-a-thon.  Each child hopped for 3 minutes recording the number of hops then collected pledges and donations based on that number.  When each classroom hopped, they were paired with another group of children, fun music was played and the hopping ensued!  Even our babies hopped in their jumper seats!  It was a fun time for everyone! This partnership with Schreiber Pediatric Rehab center allows the children the opportunity to see into the world of children who may look different but teach them that they want to be just like them!  It also gives the children a chance to learn a lesson about giving to others.  A total of $876.10 was donated to help the children at the Schreiber Pediatric Rehab Center.
