WFYI features Little Giants in documentary on high-quality preschools
Marion Community Schools and Little Giants Preschool are thrilled to have been chosen to be a part of documentary examining the importance of high-quality early learning opportunities for children.
The documentary, The Building Blocks of Our Future: A Look at Quality Early Education, features programs in Indianapolis and Marion. Little Giants Preschool Director Kerri Wortinger, along with teachers and teacher's aides, were interviewed for the film, and the crew also spent time in our classrooms on the first day of class this school year.
Take a look at a preview of the documentary here:
The full film aired on Nov. 17 on WFYI, the Indianapolis PBS station that produced the documentary. That airing was not available to Marion cable subscribers (though over-the-air and some dish customers did have the opportunity to watch.
>> WIPB, the Muncie PBS channel aired by Bright House, plans to air the documentary at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8.
In addition, Little Giants Preschool is planning a special event for donors who supported our funding drive for an early education matching grant from the state of Indiana last spring. We are planning a local premiere of the documentary at 6 p.m. Jan. 9 at the Globe Theater at Indiana Wesleyan University. Donors and their guests will have the opportunity to come and view the documentary, and meet some of the staff and families of Little Giants Preschool.
We are proud of our high-quality preschool, and we are proud to have been chosen to be a part of this documentary!
