Why we Fundraise at Children's Workshop
We at Children’s Workshop want all families to fully understand why we do fundraising throughout the year. It is an important part of our everyday finances. Our goal is to educate your children and watch them grow within a safe and fun environment. In order do so and keep our tuition cost at a competitive level, we need to fundraise. The money we raise goes back into making our classrooms and programs even better!
Create a safe, clean environment and pay our staff fairly.
Ongoing Playground Improvements, including new toys, shade areas and playground upkeep.
Classroom Enhancements, including the purchasing of new books, toys and specific curriculums that enrich and update the classroom environment.
Staff Development, so our teachers continue to receive updated research, fun ideas, and can explore new materials for our children. Your dollars allow our teachers to attend the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and/or the Michigan Association for the Education of Young Children (MAEYC) conferences.
You are not obligated to participate on these fundraisers, however, we do ask that you do what you can so we can keep this program at a competitive level. If you prefer to make a voluntary cash contribution instead of participating in our fundraisers, we budget $75 per student. Thank you!
We appreciate all that you do for Children’s Workshop!
