Infants and Children

A New Way To Learn

Aug 29, 2016

A new approach to preschool education has appeared in Wyoming, this one involving classical music and yoga mats. The Kaleidoscope Preschool Systems (KPS) will teach classes by integrating music and arts with more traditional lessons. KPS Education Director Patti Whetstone says, it's an attempt to teach children in a way that inspires creativity and a new way of thinking.

"It's an exciting adventure for all of us. The students and interacting and engaged, they're moving and singing and dancing and using instruments, and I think that's wonderful," said Whetstone.

More low-income women might have more access to better nutrition and health information.  That’s because the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children – or WIC – has raised the annual income ceiling for eligible participants by one-thousand dollars.

WIC participants can receive nutritious food and learn how to make healthy decisions for themselves and their families.

Wyoming WIC program manager Janet Moran says serving at-risk mothers early on can prevent health problems later.
