Global Contact Services (GCS) is bringing ApSeedTM Early Childhood Education to NYC! ApSeed’s goal is for every child under 5 years old to be kindergarten-ready by providing MySeedlingTM touchpads to low-income families. These proprietary touchpads are designed to teach shapes, colors, letters and numbers, which are key factors to becoming kindergarten-ready.
As part of GCS’ community outreach, we are supporting ApSeed’s efforts to bring MySeedlings to children in Long Island City, NY, where GCS has over 800 employees.
ApSeed and GCS are partnering with the Police Athletic League (PAL) to work with Western Queens Head Start. Beverly Hamilton and Sal Mushfekus, of GCS, delivered the first 75 of potentially 600 touchpads. Sal recalls, “When the teachers walked into the room and saw the touchpads, all their eyes lit up. They were so happy.”
Our community goal is to make a positive, educational impact on underprivileged children. The MySeedlingTM touchpads provides children, parents, and Pre-K teachers with a tool to prepare children for kindergarten. GCS will continue to support ApSeed in Long Island City and elsewhere.
