Korean orphan toddlers go to preschool

This year, KKOOM is able to send four Korean orphan toddlers, ages 2 and 3, to early education preschool thanks to your help. The Korean government provides funding for orphans to attend preschool starting at age 4, but most regular Korean families send their children to preschool starting at age 2. Korean orphans who don't get to attend preschool from an early age are left at a social and educational disadvantage when they join their peers in the classroom later in life.

The teachers of the four toddlers, pictured herein, say that they are making good progress, on par with their fellow classmates. Suzy and NJS have shown themselves to be exceptionally bright and really enjoy learning.

In addition to preschool, JSH is also receiving individual speech therapy after school so he can improve his speaking skills. The children's home mother who is raising him believes that he is developmentally delayed due to the lack of parenting he experienced in the first 2 years of his life (he came to the children's home last year).

Minho, who we've written about in another progress report, is also doing well. Due to developmental deficiencies and other special needs, Minho was moved from the children's home in Gumi to a nearby home for children with special needs. There, he is receiving individual physical therapy in addition to early access to education.

As always, KKOOM sincerely appreciates your support, and if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Very truly yours,

Aimee
