Innovation Pre Elementary School holds a very special place in my heart. A place where your children come to learn, explore and grow, it is also a place important to my family. Innovation was the name given to the center by my father Ernest when it was co-founded by my parents in 1990. My mother, Jackie operated, loved and nourished the center from 1990 to 2010. On November 4th, 2010, she lost a battle with cancer.
My mother built this center and she supported it; she turned her passion for caring for young children into a successful non-profit, which has served kids for 24 years. Innovation is a high quality childcare center, and it is the legacy that my mother and father built for our family.
We were able to make it through the economic crisis in the late 2000's, but the state has refused to take the initiative to restore funding, which has led to hundreds of childcare centers closing. It has been a constant struggle to provide the best education possible with the funding cuts that we have experienced, providing quality costs a lot of money.
The goal of this fundraising effort is to continue to do what my mother was so passionate about during her life, and that is to continue to serve your children and the children of Albuquerque to make sure that they get a good education.
