Caterpillar Cottage Preschool

$3,350 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 24 people in 15 days
Hello all,
Caterpillar Cottage has grown so much since I began it in my home in 2010, due to the village of teachers and families that comprise and support it. We are a progressive, play-based, developmental program that focuses on connected teacher-child relationships, respect for children's emotional process, supporting children in their capacity to solve conflicts, and curriculum that inspires a love of learning.  The video shows some of the appreciation of the parents who comprise our program. Many more have equally voiced their gratitude for this loving space. This is a place where children truly love to be.

I'm reaching out to all those who know me and want to support me toward funding the expansion of Caterpillar Cottage for a playground installation and the furnishing of our new classrooms. We have run into some unexpected expense and this will ease that burden. We have found a lovely location as our new home for this preschool program in a church in Reseda called Reseda Boulevard Church of Christ. The target is to open at this new location in September 2018.

If I reach my funding goal within the next 6 weeks to 2 months we will have the funding to meet our needs in this start up. In addition to the playground installation, there are some needed projects inside the classrooms that stress the initial budget.

If we exceed the goal of what is needed in this effort to raise funds for these projects, I would be able to assign any added funds towards a scholarship/tuition assistance fund for children who otherwise wouldn't be able to attend our program. This scholarship program is a project that I envision growing in the years to come as we establish our growing program in this new space. 

In any case, any funds that families and friends of our program are willing to donate will be a great benefit as I navigate the costs needed to begin in this wonderful new space. 

We will be updating this page with pictures of our progress and the playground project information and classroom needs. 

Thank you for your support from the bottom of my heart and from those who love this program,
