Community Preschool kids cultivate good will with ‘kindness rocks’

The Chester Community Preschool recently received a $500 grant from the Kindness Rocks Project, giving children a chance to paint rocks and have them inscribed with upbeat and inspirational sayings. The project centers around social and emotional learning and also includes workbooks and posters about kindness. Under their teachers’ guidance, the pupils on Tuesday placed their rocks around the base of a tulip tree on the grounds of the preschool. Click on any photo to launch gallery.
