WeVillage is a drop-n-go daycare, preschool, and summer camp where children learn by doing. The facility was founded by Karen Beninati who was inspired by her love of children and the positive volunteer experiences she had at her son’s school. Using her background in film production, Karen handles all of the behind-the-scenes details in order to create a holistic, community atmosphere for learning. To that end, she employs teachers who all have degrees in early-childhood education, are certified in first aid and CPR, and undergo thorough background checks.
During visits, kids play dodge ball in the park, draw pictures, and visit nearby museums. These activities are aimed at helping children improve their mental and physical skills while building the social skills necessary to succeed in school and make meaningful connections with their peers. Kids are also exposed to international culture via yoga classes, world music, and global cuisine.
