APEC Learning Center Preschool in Atlanta, Georgia
Claudia Thompson shares: I have been volunteering closely with a preschool called APEC Learning Center. They have Love, Peace and Harmony playing in all of the classes. The teachers say it calms the students. She has four year olds singing. The directors of APEC have nine after school care programs, and I am working to incorporate Love, Peace and Harmony in those programs as well.
To honor International Day of Happiness on March 20, the APEC director took the preschoolers on a fieldtrip to the local police station and private businesses to share Love, Peace and Happiness. The children made smiley face bags to share with the community.
Here are testimonials from directors at APEC:
“Since APEC Learning Center started implementing the Love, Peace and Harmony theme, the children seem a lot calmer and love singing the theme song.”
— Kathy Vines, APEC Learning Center Site Director
"I have seen some of my disruptive kids a little more calm. As for me, I love the song when I find myself feeling frustrated, I play it."
— Brigitte Jackson, Director of APEC after care program at Renaissance Elementary School in Fairburn, Georgia
