Help us fund a new home for our school!
After 37 years, Westchester Parents' Nursery School must move so our landlord can re-purpose the space. We are a non-profit organization; therefore, we have little money in our account to prepare us for this drastic change and move. We need to meet our fundraising goals to secure a new home. Your investment includes any construction and increased rent in our fast-growing neighborhood, that we have been in since 1949.  We are reaching out to the broader community to support our cherished school for generations to come. Your donation means that we can continue to raise confident, empathetic leaders who will shape our future. And every dollar helps!

Please read another testimonial about our beloved school ❤️❤️❤️
"Raised in the wilds of the Santa Cruz coast, I often felt misplaced in the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles. As I searched for a first school for my daughter, I remembered those near-feral days of my own girlhood, running through the forest, upturning rocks and studying the tall bellies of redwood trees. Imagine my delight when I found a preschool where children were encouraged to play, to explore the depth of their own ideas (What happens when I climb up the slide? Let’s build a dinosaur grotto and make an active, blue volcano next to it!). Westchester Parents’ Nursery School respects play as the “work” of children, with Director Joyce Woodruff, a barefoot wonder of the world, child whisperer, at the helm of the boisterous ship. My children felt seen, respected, loved, and powerful because their opinions and plans were honored and listened to. And because it’s a co-op preschool, I got to learn how to parent, how to get to a kid’s level and build playdough doghouses while leading the students’ first experiences with peaceful conflict resolution. Through building fortresses and painting endless paintings and getting head-to-toe messy, my kids learned to be the inquisitive, bright scholars they are today. I loved it so much I stayed on as an art teacher long after my kids had moved to elementary school. Westchester Parents’ Nursery School is a little land of magic with a big impact on the world and I feel so lucky to be part of such a bold and impactful community. "

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP: OUR IMPACT.
"I am forever so thankful for WPNS! To me the community, and the chance of being able to see my baby become a big girl has been oh so amazing! Kaley loves school, when she first started she was a baby, well to me.. at school she learned how to use the potty and speak so well. She was coming from being by herself at my cousins house to bring around all the wonderful kids. She was and is so happy. WPNS is like family being around all the families and teachers you know your kid is in good hands, my baby is extremely happy and I am so very blessed for being able to share her environment and all the things she has done. If you see my Facebook I created an album with pictures of her from when she started and I get so emotional knowing she is so strong and so grown. So WPNS rocks, a kid enjoys being a kid there even in underwear and with paint and GLITTER on their bodies!!"
