Each year, MECC touches the lives of so many families, and in so many different ways. We are a safe haven, an educational gem in the neighborhood, and to many a hope for the future of children who may not otherwise receive such a strong foundational start to their lives.
Our mission is to serve an economically diverse community and to provide high quality Montessori learning environments that meet the developmental needs of the children. MECC prides itself in being a four star parent aware program.
Here is what you mean to us:
Our commitment to our educational approach - education as an “Aid to Life” - stems from what the children have shown us: a universal love of learning, a need to reach out to explore their world, and a natural tendency toward building peace. Your children inspire us to give them the time and the resources for them to blossom into their full potential.
To do this requires highly trained guides, quality experiential material, well maintained environments, and a staff structure that can give the necessary support and guidance to everyone who is a part of this unique community. We are so proud of what we have built here, with the help of so many dedicated staff and parents like you over the past nine years.
To do this, we also need ... a good copy machine! Besides providing various cutting paper and designs to the children, we have coloring sheets, math tables, language writing strips, and illustrated story sheets. Beyond this, we also need a copier to share inspiring articles, provide timely communication to staff, and make copies of various forms for families.
Unfortunately, our copier is no longer able to keep up with these needs. By Giving to the Max today, we would use the funds raised toward purchasing a new copier for the staff room.
No matter how big or small your contribution, we greatly appreciate your family and honor you for being a valuable member of our community. Thank you for all the other ways you contribute to this community.
With Deep Gratitude,
MECC Staff and Children
