Little Sprouts Community Preschool in Cedaredge is one of only three private, non-profit licensed preschools in the county. Other options within Delta County are met through the BELA program as part of the public school system.
Fundraisers have been carried out and grants have been sought to assist families enrolled in the Little Sprouts program when a financial assistance exists. An out-reach plan, Pay it Forward, has been started to temporarily help toward tuition fees.
Letters were sent to churches and businesses with a fact sheet about the program and a request to consider helping by taking the opportunity to Pay it Forward.
Four have responded at this date — $100 has been contributed by the Eckert Presbyterian Church, $227 from the Methodist Church, $500 from United Methodist Women, and $150 from Bowie Resources.
Preschool staff and board members are grateful for this response and hope that others, including individuals, will respond to this need. Funds will be used only to benefit families with a "hand up rather than a hand out" that will temporarily help a preschooler to continue attending Little Sprouts Community Preschool.blog comments powered by Disqus
