The Learning Grove Childcare centre is a non-profit organization. We operate primarily on the funds collected from parent fees.
In an effort to keep parent fees affordable, the centre relies heavily on fundraising to help cover some operating costs as well as to purchase equipment or other needs the centre may have.
Our annual summer fair held in late June is our biggest fundraiser. We also have a seafood ticket raffle in the fall. Parents, along with local businesses and members of community, help out graciously with these fundraisers.
The children also take part in local fundraising. Each year, in the spring, the centre takes part in “Hop Day” or “Purple Day” to raise funds for causes such as muscular dystrophy and epilepsy.
We also take part in bagging groceries at local stores and participate in the food bank drive.
