Charlene believes in Kindertots being a strong part of the community. We encourage our educators and children to become involved within our community, helping and supporting local projects, such as Soldier Shoe Box Project, Breast Cancer Awareness, Christmas Food Hampers, Relay for Life, Winter Giving Tree, Food Bank, IWK, and Christmas Family Adoption and Steps for MS. Instilling a sense of community in our children gives them a sense of belonging and a sense of self worth.
