Presently, we are planning to move the 30 or so children back to the Rehoboth facility and incor- porate them into the existing pro- gram, which means we can add the gymnasium and swimming to the program, which is enriching." However, she noted, there are a number of people in the .Lewes program who find it difficult to travel daily to take their children to the Rehoboth facility, so the 'Y would still like to find another fa- cility in the Lewes area, if possi- ble; they will continue operating out of the Grace U.M. Church in Millsboro, as well. Anyone knowing of a possible facility for the Lewes Giant Step Preschool in September should contact Givens at 228-8018. They now have two classrooms, with a five-day program for 4-year-olds; a three-day program for 4-year- olds; and a two-day program for 3-year-olds. Also, current mem- bers who pre-register for any of the Giant Step facilities, may waive the registration fee if they do so before April 1. There will be a Giant Step Open House from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, April 4, for anyone interested in learning more about the program.
