Preschool the Idaho Way
Giraffe Laugh has partnered with The Boys and Girls Club of Ada County, Future Public School, The Learning Lab, The Garden City Public Library, and Family Advocates to bring a half day preschool program to the residents of Garden City.
We are so excited about this opportunity to bring a much needed program to 20 four and five year olds.

Due to Coronavirus, this year we had to celebrate our wonderful preschool graduates a little different. Rather than doing a tradition graduation we decided to host a drive by graduation outside of our Giraffe Laugh 2 location.
This was such a fun time for both our students and our teachers and will be something that everyone will remember for the rest of our lives.
As a part of our graduation program, our students also received a backpack stuffed full of all kinds of amazing materials such as coloring books, crayons, pencils, school supplies, bubbles, and so much more. Thanks to Book It Forward, our graduates also received a copy of Oh, The Places You Will Go, signed by their teacher, as well as a couple other wonderful books. We received SO much support from our Giraffe Laugh family that we were not only able to give a backpack to each graduate, but also to their siblings and children in the surrounding community.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen. If you would like to see our graduation video, please visit this link.
We are so blessed to have celebrated 30 years of Giraffe Laugh in July of 2019. It is hard to believe that it has already been 30 wonderful and crazy years.
We are so thankful for each and every person who has taken time out of their day, week, or year to help us get to where we are today.

2020 has been a rollercoaster of a year so far. Due to the pandemic Giraffe Laugh closed our doors from March - May 31st. During this time we took the time to create a detailed plan of what our centers would look like when we opened back up to ensure that all of our Giraffe Laugh families and staff continued to stay and feel safe and healthy while they were in our centers.
One way we continued to serve our mission, even though our doors were closed, is through our lunch program. Every Tuesday and Friday we served lunches to Giraffe Laugh families and surrounding community members.
We also put together a Covid Relief fund. This fund has been put in place to help our families who may be struggling due to job loss, sickness, or loss of home due to the coronavirus. It also was put in place to help us ensure we are able to continue supplying necessary cleaning supplies and PPE's to all 3 of our centers and our Summer Program, in order to ensure that we are doing our part to keep Covid out of our centers.
