Non-Profit Child Care Center Receives Playground Update

SAN ANGELO – The Mosaic Redwine Child Care Center, in its 15th year of operation, celebrated on Monday, January 8 at 4:30 p.m., a much-needed playground update, thanks to grants from the San Angelo Health Foundation and the Mary Ellen Kent Bunyard Foundation, and donations from parents of children attending the center. 

The child care center is unique in San Angelo, in that it accepts children with and without disabilities. Approximately 15% of the children attending have disabilities (mirroring the disability percentage in the general population). 

At a cost of approximately $130,000, the upgrade includes a solid play surface, which will be more conducive to children with disabilities, several new equipment pieces and 4 interactive play panels.
