Going to at least one laundromat in Cairo may seem educational and entertaining for young children thanks to a partnership between the business owner and Grady County School system. Proceeds from an L4GA grant to the school system has helped to create a literacy learning area for children at the new laundromat located on Martin Luther King Junior Avenue.
“We are appreciative of the welcoming support the laundromat owner displayed,” states Erin Simpson, K-8 literacy coach and L4GA grant director for the school system. “We are happy to partner with the laundromat and enhance the children’s area.”
On behalf of the school system, Simpson has filled the children’s area of the laundromat with books, puzzles, puppets, props, and other items to encourage families that visit the laundromat to read to and play with their children while waiting on their laundry.
The L4GA grant was awarded to Grady County Schools in June of 2020. The Department of Education awarded Grady County Schools with funding to increase literacy in our schools and community. “
We look forward to continuing to serve our community and extend literacy opportunities throughout,” Simpson states.
