Jack and Jill Nursary
For 2007, we decided to support some of the younger members of our local
community. Jack and Jill nursery is situated on the Baxter College campus
in Blakebrook, Kidderminster and offers nursery care for children aged
between three and five years.
We were very happy
to be able to supply them with two new computer systems, including special
mice, designed especially for young children to use.
Research and personal
experience leads us to believe that, when used correctly, computers can
be an asset to children: they can assist with developing hand-eye coordination;
carefully designed software packages allow youngsters to explore freely
and learn at their own pace; sharing the computer with others also reinforces
the importance of sharing, taking turns and working as a group and can
aid the development of social skills.
