Phi Chapter Psi Iota Xi Sorority Donation Makes Musical Instrument Purchase Possible

Pathfinder Kids Kampus recently received a monetary donation from Phi Chapter Psi Iota Xi Sorority to purchase musical instruments for 3-5 year olds. The wooden instruments will enrich the lives of the children served at the child care center.

The monetary donation was made possible thanks to Phi Chapter’s sponsorship of the annual Forks of the Wabash Pioneer Festival and from selling cheese balls last November. The instruments purchased include maracas, finger cymbals, and sand block instruments. The instruments are used in both small group and in large group at Pathfinder Kids Kampus. In small group the children might build a stage and use the instruments for their performances. In large group the children work together or in pairs to enhance the music activities. The educators at Pathfinder Kids Kampus also use the instruments during transitions from one activity to another so that the children can repeat a beat.

Pathfinder Kids Kampus is currently enrolling 3-5 year olds for the 2016-17 preschool year and child care openings are also available.  For more information, please contact 260-356-0123 or [email protected].
