Sinergia Delivers 10 Computers to Local Preschools

The IBM KidSmart Program is a joint initiative between the PACER Center and IBM that awards Young Explorer computers to preschools. As a partner, Sinergia identified 10 schools in New York City and delivered the kid-friendly PCs with all the software to the sites this past week.

"We received the unit, unpacked it, set it up and started using it the next day. The kids love it!" --Rita Brito, Child Center of New York

The following preschools received the Young Explorer computers:
  • Association to Benefit Children, 419 E. 86th St., NY, NY 10028
  • Echo Park Early Childhood Center, 1841 Park Ave. NY, NY 10035
  • Bilingual Head Start, 440 East 116th Street NY, NY 10029
  • The Child Center of NY, 60-02 Queens Blvd. Woodside NY 11377
  • Escalera Head Start, 169 West 87th Street NY, NY 10024
  • Falu Foundation, 333 East 118th Street NY, NY 10035

Sinergia's Young Explorer (pictured above) will be used by children whose parents attend the educational workshops or await their case managers, or for other staff. The only problem is keeping the big adults away from them since they are so cute!
