LAS VEGAS - Oct. 4, 2014 - PRLog -- Nevada PEP has received a donation by IBM of four of its KidSmart Young Explorer Computers to help children with disabilities and their classmates learn to use the computers together. Through PACER Center, Nevada PEP is proud to be the partner for our state. Nevada PEP and Nevada Department of Education have collaborated together by developing a competition grant to find early childhood classrooms that are promoting inclusion practices.  In the competition grant, these preschools outlined innovative practices that would be put into place if they were awarded these wonderful computers. The winners of this grant are

Peace Garden Child Care Center—Las Vegas, NV

Christ Kids Child Center—Las Vegas, NV

As Rebecca Miller from Peace Garden remarked; “Our Kidsmart computer has given our kids an opportunity to learn to share and improve their computer skills. We are grateful for this donation.”
