Donor Spotlight

Caribu

Caribu was named one of the top 100 Best Inventions by TIME Mag - azine and our Lekotek leaders agree. The app is available for phones and iPads as well as use online. One family member or friend invites another to play. Activities include tic tac toe, word search, puzzles, drawing, coloring and more. Children can also select from many book titles, choosing to read the story or have the story read to them. The app is interactive and promotes turn taking, early learning, literacy and fine motor skills. During the COVID 19 pandemic, all play sessions, sibshops and family activities have been suspended. But staff members have successfully conducted play sessions, sibshops and even computer club through Zoom and apps like Caribu. With the benefit of technology, we are continuing to provide Lekotek services and resources to our families and during these challenging times, our families need Lekotek more than ever.   Caribu has graciously donated a subscription to each Lekotek Leader to use with our children during virtual play sessions as well as at all our centers, in person, after the pandemic.
