Bloomington Kids’ SAFARI partners with National Inclusion Project

Bloomington Kids’ SAFARI is partnering with the National Inclusion Project to create an inclusive environment where children with and without disabilities can play and learn together.

Through the partnership, the National Inclusion Project provides the Let’s ALL Play program, which includes staff training, an annual Power of Play Conference and access to a network of inclusion experts.

The Let’s ALL Play program helps children with disabilities improve self-esteem, social skills and confidence, while those without disabilities improve their leadership, problem solving and empathy skills. The program makes it possible for all children to come together and participate in recreational activities like swimming, arts and crafts, community service, and physical fitness. It also allows children to create friendships that may have not been possible in other parts of their lives.

About Bloomington Kids’ SAFARI

Kids’ SAFARI is a before- and after-school program for children in kindergarten through grade 5 available at all Bloomington elementary schools. The focus of the program is on school-age childcare and enrichment opportunities designed to meet the changing needs of children and families. Kids’ SAFARI is fee-based and administered by the Bloomington Community Education Youth and Family Department. For more information, call 952-681-6125.

About the National Inclusion Project

The National Inclusion Project was co-founded in 2003 by entertainer Clay Aiken and serves to bridge the gap that exists between young people with disabilities and the world around them. For more information on the National Inclusion Project, visit www.inclusionproject.org.
