Rotterdam sports complex, daycare slowly recovering after April fire
A fire at a sports complex in Rotterdam caused a setback for a daycare inside. Now, six months later, they are eager to share their progress.
Back in April, there was a fire at Sportime, causing a group of children to evacuate. Now, the children are back in a classroom.
“It kind of put us back a little bit, but through donations from families and communities, almost everything we have is donated. So we were able to get up and running pretty quickly after the fire,” Brie Lawrence, with Sportime Eager Explorers Daycare. “Early education really gets those kids set up with social skills, early development, fine motor, things like that that really help them kind of set themselves apart when they start kindergarten.”
All of these students currently in the Pre-K class are guaranteed a spot in the Eager Explorers Summer Camp that fills up quickly.
