THE STORY:

University Settlement’s Park Slope North/Helen Owen Carey Child Development Center is a vibrant, multicultural preschool for children of diverse socio-economic backgrounds in Brooklyn, New York.

This year, the Parents’ Action Committee (PAC) was given an exciting 2:1 matching grant by NYMAC. They will donate $2 for every $1 raised by our families and community, up to a $30,000 donation.

That means if we can raise $15,000 it will turn into $45,000 for our school.

The PAC would like to use the funds, in part, to improve the amazing playspaces that PSN/HOC has to offer – namely the large rooftop playground, the backyard playspace and the back garden. The equipment on the roof and in the backyard for the 2s classes have been well-loved and are in desperate need of an upgrade. Just a few examples of what your donations will make possible:

$5 buys a ball

$10 buys a helmet

$20 buys a barkless tree block set

$40 buys a set of gardening tools

$75 buys a sun shade sail

$150 buys a tricycle

$200 buys a sand table

$400 buys an water exploration table

$750 buys a new playhouse

$1,000 buys a full set of outdoor weather engineering blocks

The staff, teachers and parents of our school firmly believe that young children learn best through play. It is through play that children learn to ask questions, search for answers, navigate social situations, and learn to make sense of the world around them. This dedicated philosophy, along with our truly unique outdoor playspaces, is part of what makes PSN/HOC such a special place. The ability to upgrade the equipment in these spaces will bring endless enrichment and joy to both the current students and future students to come.

Our Goal: Raise $15,000 by May 8, 2015

The Impact: Every $1 contributed turns into $3, for a total of $45,000

EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS! Please donate today and share with your family and friends!

All gifts are 100% tax deductible.

If you prefer to donate via check or cash, please bring them to the office at Park Slope North. Checks can be made out to University Settlement
