February is upon us! We hope you’ll come join us in our fun!
Aside from our classes, we usually have a separate craft (craft being broadly defined – we’ve been known to bake ) and/or outdoor
activity (excuse me, ADVENTURE!) daily to keep them busy exercising their imaginations. TONS of freeplay occurs – it is by far one of
the most popular activities – we have tons of food shops and pirate adventures happening in the realm of the dress-up box, slide, play
set, and the playground – well, it does offer the perfect equipment for surveying the area!
This month our focus is on:
(1) Putting together an African American History Month info wall & fostering cross-cultural understanding
(2) Continuing to foster and especially highlighting self-love & appreciation!

Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap
but by the seeds that you plant.

VOL. #1



Thank YOU!

We’ve had a surge of new
volunteers come in and each of
them brings an awesome
personality and offers all that they
have to give each time they come
to the center – many, many
thanks; all of you enable the
center to be well-managed and
ensures the kids get the attention
and affection they deserve!

Our garden is thriving! Thanks to
FOG (Florida Organic Growers)
and Candace for getting it all set
up for us in December – we are
really starting to see beautiful
results and the kids love how the
greens taste (we catch them
picking around sometimes when
they think no one is looking!)

A HUGE thank you to Beth and
Heddy for taking time out of their
busy schedules to put in long
hours over the weekend to
rearrange the center – the layout
is fantastic!

Thank you to all the parents who
are open in communicating with
us about how we can meet the
needs of their children and for
coming out to keep the center fun
and peaceful – we are grateful for


A couple of knicks & knacks,
Lots of pizazz.

 We were able to crowdsource funds on
Indiegogo to buy a beautiful hand-crafted
one-of-a-kind play set from a local shop in
Gainesville. It is an amazing imagination
station and the kids love all the things they
can imagine up with it – endless hours of
cooperative play up ahead!
 We also were able to set up 4 computers (one
of them with internet access (so far!) at the
center to play educational games on - the kids
enjoy the interaction with technology – again,
thanks Heddy!

Our Spring Festival is around the corner! Would you like to be a sponsor, a vendor, or a volunteer to help us
reach our fundraising goal to keep our center programs thriving and able to expand their scope within the

community? Please contact us by email yoppinc@yahoo.com for more information or answers to any questions
you may have! Thank you for your time and interest to bring fruitful programming to the community!

That’s All Folks!

We love to recycle objects for crafts – cardboard, egg cartons, stones, shells, containers, and the like - Don’t throw them
away, bring them to us, we’d love to use them!


Have spare time and want to give back to the community? Come VOLUNTEER with us!
Free time? Come play! Anyone is welcome to come help out, but we also:

Desire to find someone who would be willing to volunteer their time @ least one day per week to play a
bit a B-Ball with the kiddos.

Would like someone who would like to donate a day a week to teach some skateboard skills – a recent
craze @ the center!
