Spring Spruce Up

Project Overview

"Play is the work of childhood" - Jean Piaget

Play is essestial to the healthy development of children and adolescents. Play influences the development of fine and gross motor skills, language, socialization, personal awareness, emotional well-being, creativitiy, problem solving, and learning ability. The goal of Spring Spruce Up is to ensure that early learning environments are well equipped to stimulate the social, emotional and academic development of our youngest learners.

Tasks will include:

  • Painting
  • Equipment Assembly and Installation
  • Gardening
  • Cleaning
  • And more!

Join United Way Monterey County for Spring Spruce Up as we upgrade play facilities at early childhood education centers throughout the county.

Thanks to our generous sponsors and talented volunteers we were able to hold two Spring Spuce Up events in 2018, at Seaside Child Development Center sponsored by Rabobank and San Jerardo Migrant and Seasonal Head Start sponsored by 1st Capital Bank.
