Preschool Renovation Project

“Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world.” 
                                                             – Maria Montessori

We are laying the foundation. We are building for the future. Guided by our mission and vision, and supported by 70 years of pioneering educational excellence in the region, our sights are focused on the next generation of Day School students. 
 
They will be distinguished by their academic and extracurricular achievements. Their characters will be defined by an unwavering integrity and a sense of balance and empathy. They will become entrepreneurs, doctors, artists, educators, and civic leaders. They will raise strong families and give back to their communities. They will make extraordinary contributions to our world. This is the Portrait of a Day School Graduate.
 
While glimpsing our children’s future, we recognize our responsibility in the present.  I am honored to introduce Day School’s Preschool Renovation Project and the development of a new Early Learning Center. This two-year, two-phase project boasts a modest fundraising goal of $200,000. Yet, what we are able to accomplish together as a community through these enhancements will pay dividends for generations.
 
On behalf of Day School’s Preschool faculty, students, families and all who come after, thank you for supporting our future!
 
Sincerely, 
Robert Foster
Chair - Early Learning Expansion Task Force
Father to Samuel ‘29, Andrew ‘27, Nathan ‘24, Brandon ‘22, & William ‘20
