The Thrifty Attic, a Londonderry organization that provides services and supports to area non-profit organizations and families, has given a grant to The Little School to support their financial aid program.
It is important to The Little School that all children whose families would like them to attend are able to enroll in their school for young children. Therefore, The Little School includes many students who receive financial aid. By providing scholarships to The Little School families, the Thrifty Attic's grant is contributes to The Little School's ability to serve a diverse group of students and families.
The Thrifty Attic's support is especially important this year, when difficult economic conditions have had a serious effect on a great number of families in The Little School community. More families applied for financial aid than ever before.
"The Thrifty Attic grant makes a meaningful and direct difference in the lives of our community's young children and their families," said Leah Bratton, director of The Little School, "and we are grateful for their partnership in this important work."
A non-profit, accredited preschool, The Little School has provided an early childhood education program for children, ages 2 through 5 years old, in Weston and surrounding areas for 35 years.
