Decatur - A local daycare is taking advantage of technology with Smart Boards.
Decatur's Kid's Castle Learning Center uses Smart Boards in their pre-school classes, to prepare kids for kindergarten and first grade.
The pilot program has been successful in helping students stay on track. Keith Brown says the kids love learning the new technology "It's really gotten the attention of the kids that normally wouldn't participate and they get excited to get in front of the board. It's really been a great success for us so far."
They've ordered more Smart Boards and plan to put them in the remaining pre-school classes at their three locations.
