Anew Program Goals 2021
$815 Raised by 6 Donors
Anew Dimension Child Enrichment Center is an early childhood education program that invites children to imagine with adults the endless possibilities of sharing and developing gifts and talents in a creative arts community.
Anew Dimension Child Enrichment Center has been helping children reach their full potential since 1969. We are a nonprofit, NAEYC accredited child enrichment program, serving economically and culturally diverse children and families in Minnesota. We provide unique and inclusive care in a nurturing atmosphere where all cultural perspectives are valued. Many of the children at Anew Dimension come from East African immigrant communities. Multiple different languages are spoken and celebrated. The diversity of the families we serve is reflected in our staff and board of directors. Our highly valued staff come from a variety of backgrounds and typically stay with the program for many years. The longevity of our staff retention is something we are proud of and a significant strength of our program.
Our curriculum is individualized, focusing on the development of each child with an emphasis on social and emotional development, school readiness and the arts. For over 50 years our organization has grown and developed with the changing needs of our community. We are committed to offering the highest quality care and education for children and strengthening families throughout the Twin Cities. We are proud to acknowledge our reputation as an organization with “a compelling mission and history of achievement”.
This November 18th we are partnering with GiveMN.org for their annual Give to the Max fundraising challenge!
We have identified three areas of focus that are important for improving the quality of our program for the children we serve. We are in need of STEAM toys and installations for classrooms, outdoor playground and garden. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities encourage children to think, reason, problem-solve and experiment. We also want to explore sustainable practices for our own energy consumption. This will be beneficial for our planet and a great way to teach children about environmental responsibility and renewable resources. Finally, we are in need of books that promote justice and focus on multi-culturalism and diversity. This is incredibly important to our program, as we are proud of the diversity reflected in the staff and families here at Anew Dimension.
In order to implement these goals, we are in need of financial help. We are incredibly grateful for the support we received last year for our playground revitalization project. The generous donations received were used to make necessary repairs and replace parts of our equipment to ensure that the children have a safe and enjoyable place to play outdoors. If you are able to make a contribution towards the program improvements this year, thank you so much for your support! We are excited to implement these goals for 2021 and beyond.
