Support Height's Cooperative Preschool

Hi there!
My name is Taryn Kaplan (she/they) and I am the incoming Director at Heights Cooperative Pre-School. I am so excited to share my knowledge and expertise in childcare and development to bring a new and exciting experience to families and children.
The Heights Cooperative Preschool has been serving the Heights community for over 50 years and serves kids and families from all over Northeast Ohio. Our classroom spaces are part of Church of the Redeemer, and while we have many ties with the church community, we are a secular preschool.
I am raising funds to support a re-design and re-stocking of the spaces in Heights Cooperative Preschool, including outdoor play spaces, classrooms and shared spaces, and to invest in lower waste materials in the building. As an educator, I strive to create classrooms that use sustainable materials and encourage repurposing items; now as a building leader, I have the opportunity to teach our children to be resourceful, creative and respectful of the spaces that we share.
My personal and professional experiences have emphasized the benefits of educating not just children, but communities as a whole. That's why I'm looking to the formal support system in advance of this important transitional year to help create the environment in which our students deserve to learn and grow.
Your investment will support the re-invigoration of our learning spaces at Heights Cooperative Preschool. If you want to learn more about us, visit the link here. If you want to learn more about me as a leader, check out my bio here.
