Calming Corners

“Calming Corners” are designated areas in preschool and kindergarten classrooms for children who are experiencing stress, anxiety, or having a “meltdown.” These safe spaces allow them to calm down, regain composure, and get back to learning. Child Guidance & Family Solutions is putting together Calming Corner kits for preschool and kindergarten classrooms throughout the area. By donating any of the items listed below, you can help us ensure our children have a place to relax when they’re overwhelmed without leaving the classroom.

All donations can be dropped off at our Central office 18 N. Forge Street in Akron or at any CG&FS location during business hours. Locations can be found on our website. For more information contact Development at
