Funshine Preschool

One of our missions at Funshine Preschool is to teach our children the importance of giving back and helping the community. A few ways we have done this in the past is: 

  • The PreK class brings in mittens and gloves for the APC clothing Bank.
  • We hold food drives 4 times a year for the local food assistance center: AFAC.
  • The kids give their extra halloween candy to Operation Gratitude.
  • Our teachers knit scarves for Doorways (a Domestic Abuse Shelter), the soldiers via Operation Gratitude, and a local church in DC.
  • We collect clothes and toiletries for the homeless shelter, Miraims kitchen. 
  • We host a trike-a-thon for St. Jude's Children's hospital every spring.
  • Total money raised over the years is over $10,000!
  • Fall 2016 - we collected halloween candy to send to Operation Gratitude.​​

We are spending summer 2017 working on a project called "Square Foot Gardening." Each child has a square foot to plant, water and manage on there own. We are growing okra, beans, mint, and cucumbers to donate to Arlington Food Assistance Center. 

We also have a Butterfly Garden called "Carmen's Garden". Carmen Romero mentored Paige and Beth through the process of finding renovating, funding and moving into our new building and finding a temporary place after the fire.
