“Play is often talked about as a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is the work of childhood.” 

— Fred Rogers


The Play Campaign

Our fundraising efforts kick-off Monday, October 3rd and continue through Friday, October 19th. Hanna families and friends are invited to support our nursery school community by making a tax-deductible donation. Our goal this year is to reach 100% participation and to raise $50,000.

This year's fundraising theme is Play (one of the founding principles of our school). When we allow children the chance to play freely, we embrace social-constructivist beliefs that play-based learning supports children in constructing their own knowledge. We view the child as the protagonist of their own learning, and through social interactions and project-based investigations, teachers support children’s curiosities, questions, and theories. It is through play that children at a very early age engage and interact in the world around them.


This year's donation will go towards closing our tuition gap.
