Kirkland Librarian Visits Preschool

The children’s librarian at the Kirkland Town Library made a special visit this week to the Upstate Cerebral Palsy New Discoveries Learning Center in Clinton to read stories to the young children. The program features an integrated preschool setting, made up of both typically functioning children and those with differing abilities.

On Tuesday, May 4, Cate Thiele of the Kirkland Town Library visited the two New Discoveries classrooms at the Clinton Elementary School to interact with the children and read fun, engaging stories. The visit comes after the “Week of the Young Child” which took place at the end of April and celebrated the agency’s preschool children.

The New Discoveries Learning Center serves both preschool and daycare children ages 3 to 5 years old. Students at different developmental levels work and learn together in an inclusive preschool setting. There are various sites across the Mohawk Valley including Barneveld, Chadwicks, Clinton, Rome and Utica. The preschool and daycare programs are licensed by New York State Department of Education.

All New Discoveries Learning Centers are now accepting fall applications for preschool and daycare children. To register a child, contact Gineene Comito-Paulson at (315) 798-4006 ext. 266.
