Children at Heart Prints have been exploring ideas about heroes for several weeks, welcoming a variety of real-life heroes to their classrooms. They’ve discussed what they like about the “super” heroes in our imaginations, heroes throughout history and the things that even children can do to make a difference. Families also have been collecting donations for the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank.
Heart Prints is a private preschool and Kindergarten located at the Regional Learning Alliance in Cranberry. It is a family-centric, early childhood education program that encourages young children to think clearly and creatively, to discover cultural and aesthetic values, to respond sensitively to others, to manage conflict respectfully, and to recognize they are members of the worldwide community.
