Why we Fundraise at Children's Workshop

We at Children’s Workshop want all families to fully understand why we do fundraising throughout the year. It is an important part of our everyday finances. Our goal is to educate your children and watch them grow within a safe and fun environment. In order do so and keep our tuition cost at a competitive level, we need to fundraise. The money we raise goes back into making our classrooms and programs even better!  


This includes:


  • Security Updates, as part of Children’s Workshop’s ongoing commitment to school safety, we have hired a safety consultant to insure the safety of our students through an assessment of our building and current procedures. They will be training our staff on the latest procedures and we will be purchasing items to insure our school and classrooms are a safe environment.  
  • Ongoing Playground Improvements, including new toys, shade areas and playground upkeep. 
  • Classroom Enhancements, including the purchasing of new books, toys and specific curriculums that enrich and update the classroom environment.
  • Staff Development, so our teachers continue to receive updated research, fun ideas, and can explore new materials for our children.  Your dollars allow our teachers to attend the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and/or the Michigan Association for the Education of Young Children (MAEYC) conferences.
