We here at Parents Nursery School hope that you and your families are healthy in mind, body and spirit. Our community has always been focused on supporting families, and we sincerely hope that you are finding the support you need during these difficult times.
Since 1949, PNS has been a magical little corner of the world, where children can play and learn together in a friendly and safe place, where they are known and loved by the adults guiding them. Every contribution over the last seven decades, no matter how big or small, has helped PNS thrive and continue in its mission to serve children and families year after year.
We are relieved to tell you that PNS is currently open and, in strict accordance with all health and safety guidelines, we are running two very small in-person outdoor classes and one remote class called “PNS-at-Home.” Even so, we are only operating at 50% of the number of enrolled families from February of this year; half of which is comprised of our virtual program that is offered at vastly lower tuition than our in-person classes. Even though we are running on severely diminished enrollment we are continuing to offer our scholarship program to those in need of financial assistance in our community. It’s a sobering fact, however, that many nursery schools like ours are not so fortunate. Several co-operative nursery schools in our wider area have closed for good, due to many factors but certainly hastened by Covid-19.
However, due to the pandemic and like so many others, we need to reach out for additional support. Our current year’s loss will be upwards of $20,000 just to break even. Because our in-person classes need to be so small, and because we are unable to have our biggest annual fundraiser – the Carnival, we are hoping you’ll consider making a donation to PNS as we face many uncertainties. All donations are tax-deductible and if you work for an employer that has a corporate matching program, you can submit your GoFundMe receipt and Parents Nursery School will receive a matching donation!
As a ‘Thank You’ for your kindness, and in true PNS fashion, we are -paying it forward- by offering the following for your generosity:
-$100+ donated gives you access to a 1-hour Family Friendly Virtual Dance Party with a performance by PNS Music Teacher, Teacher Kathy and professional guest DJ’s from our vast PNS community.
-For every donation $25+ you will be entered into a drawing to win a special 1-on-1/family virtual session, like a bedtime story with Teacher Amy, offered by our dedicated teachers.
We are so grateful for any contribution you feel able to give. We want to keep Parents Nursery School around for another seventy years, supporting families and most of all, being a wonderful, magical, joyful, safe, friendly, and fun place for children to play and learn. Thank you!
