May 01, 2010>LAWRENCE'S "CHILDREN OF AMERICA CHILDCARE" IS FIRST IN STATE
Applications for enrollment now being accepted
Children of America Educational Childcare opened its first school in the state at 10830 Pendleton Pike in Lawrence. The new educational childcare welcomes parents to tour its facility to experience the specially designed classrooms and learn about the company's unique age-appropriate curriculums. The school offers educational programming for children six weeks to 12 years of age.
Children of America early childhood educational programming includes curriculum designed to promote:
• Sensory and motor ability development in a music-filled, reassuring environment for infants (six weeks to 16 months);
• Eye-hand coordination and socialization skills such as sharing and taking turns for toddlers (16 months to 2 1/2 years);
• Self-help skills, physical coordination, artistic expression and understanding of colors and shapes, language and letters for preschoolers (2 1/2 to 4 years);
• Supervised fun and homework assistance before and after school for students (5 to 12 years); and
• Fun-filled learning adventures throughout the summer months at Camp WOW for children 5 to 12 years of age.
The new school is equipped with state-of-the-art security systems and also utilizes additional safeguarding measures such as assigning each child a Personal Identification Number (PIN) that signals their arrival and departure and an Internet access program, AlwaysCloseBy.com which allows parents to check-in on their children throughout the day via streaming video of the classrooms and play areas.
Those interested in enrolling a child at Children of America are encouraged to visit the school to complete an application Monday through Friday between 6 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. The school phone number is (317) 826-0399.

Bikes4Kids Helps Donate Gently-Used Bikes to Local Children
"We all remember our first bike. But some children don't have a bike of their own. Our number one goal is to get these kids a bike to ride," says Valerie Luzadder, Owner of Carmel Cyclery.
Bikes4Kids is a 501c3 charity centered in Carmel, IN that takes donated gently used bikes and refurbishes them to give to area children and adults in need. "We started our project in our garage in March 2006 as a result of our teenage son wanting to help other kids. The very first bike we gave out was to a boy who was so excited and appreciative—we were hooked," says Luzadder.
To date, Bikes4Kids has given out more than 525 bikes. If you have a bike that your child has outgrown, please drop it by Carmel Cyclery Bike Shop at 260 W Carmel Drive. Questions? Call 317-575-8588 or E-mail email@example.com.
