Burnsville, Minnesota (PressExposure) May 04, 2009 -- To support preschool children and families in light of school closings across the country due to the Swine Flu, ThumbPeople, Inc. is responding by making Thumbuddy Club curriculum available at a reduced cost.
Mark Arens, the founder of the Minnesota company with a heart for children, stands committed to strengthen and affirm preschoolers with the positive and encouraging Thumbuddy message.
Arens says, "ThumbPeople exists to support parents and help them affirm the positive qualities within their child and encourage them to be all they were created to be. We want to support parents through every challenge in life. As current school closings due to Swine Flu challenge families, we're offering Thumbuddy Club curriculum at a reduced cost to everyone. It's one way we can continue to support families and build-up kids."
Designed by a preschool curriculum expert, Thumbuddy Club utilizes story time, crafts, music, activities and take-home bags to instill the message to children that just like their thumb leaves a unique, one-of-a-kind thumbprint, they are one-of-a-kind and their life leaves a unique imprint in the world and just as their thumb stands out from their fingers, they were meant to stand out and live outstanding lives.
Originally designed for before or after school programs, children's library programs, summer programs, Vacation Bible School, and daycares, Thumbuddy Club can also be easily facilitated within the home. Two versions of Thumbuddy Club have been developed, Thumbuddy Club and Thumbuddy Club for My Church for both the secular and Christian environments.
Child educators have applauded Thumbuddy Club for its positive influence in developing self-worth within children and promoting a strong self image.
Thumbuddy Club is available at a reduced cost through May 15, 2009 at ThumbPeople.com.
