Dear Friend of Peopleplace,

Another year is coming to a close and the season for giving is upon us.  I hope as you consider the many organizations that seek your support, Peopleplace will shine as a most worthy recipient.  Many of you have had firsthand experience with our early childhood program, others may have known us for years as a community preschool, and still others have heard stories from friends and family of how Peopleplace has enriched their lives.  Whatever your connection to Peopleplace may be, your participation as a donor to the Annual Appeal will directly benefit the children and families enrolled in our programs.

From our earliest days as a cooperative preschool, Peopleplace has successfully created a program that encourages parents to be engaged in their children’s education, and involved in their school.  Current research on early brain development underscores creating an environment that nurtures a child’s spirit, stimulates creativity, and links families and staff through respectful relationships.  Our children are learning to be independent thinkers, as well as to understand the importance of community and respect for each other – invaluable life skills.

This school year we are serving sixty families from thirteen towns in Midcoast Maine, ranging from Monhegan to Appleton.  For many parents choosing Peopleplace comes at a cost – tuition, travel time, commitment to the cooperative – but it is a choice they make happily – for all that comes in return.  When you choose to donate to the Annual Appeal you can rest assured that the funds are used to provide scholarships to families in need, support to the professional development and training of our teachers,  and to offer specialized programming for children and parents.

Thank you and Best Wishes for the end of the year,

Sessa Salas,

Executive Director, Peopleplace Cooperative Preschool
