Congregational Preschool in Austin was one of 22 organizations to receive a Young Explorer Learning System through Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation’s Early Childhood Initiative. This project, promoting technology and science to young children, was made possible through a partnership between SMIF and the IBM KidSmart Early Learning Program.

Congregational Preschool was selected to receive a Young Explorer Learning System valued at $2,149 because of their commitment to provide a trained adult and easy access for young children and their families to enjoy this exciting new way of learning.

A local celebration will be planned.
