Our Giving Tree

There are many ways for you to support the future hearts and minds that will inspire our world. Giving to our programs is one way to empower children by embracing a philanthropic commitment to our community ~ and to the world. There are many ways to support us. 

We are grateful for your support. 

Why Give?

Through giving, you model for your children the importance of supporting community endeavors that empower the betterment of the world. You help your child understand how to be a contributor to something bigger than themselves. You nurture in them an investment in the growth and learning of themselves and those around them by providing the opportunity for the enhancement of our learning environment.  

Research has shown that children who are a part of the giving process feel a greater sense of happiness in their lives, feel more connected to their community, and develop strong personal values that stay with them for life. 

Who Benefits?

Your child, the other children, our team, and the community all benefit from your donation. In fact, your donation can impact the lives of children yet to attend Kinderoo.

By supporting children’s emergent learning in the early years with a donation, you help pave the way for a world of innovative thinkers, creative problem-solvers, and curious investigators. 

 

With your support, we can continue to provide an endless world of creative and innovative possibilities that support 21st century skills, enhance thinking, and build relationships among children, families, educators, the community, and the world around us. Your generosity impacts the world. 

How Is the Money Used ?

All donations made to Kinderoo Children’s Academy are directed straight to your child by enhancing learning spaces, acquiring new materials, and enriching our indoor and outdoor environments.

We are forever grateful for all donations. Every little bit counts and no donation is too small. We send our thanks to you!

FAQ

We are full of gratitude for any monetary donation, big or small. Every little bit counts. As your child’s learning needs are continuously evolving, we are always enhancing our collection of learning materials and spaces both indoors and outdoors. We are forever grateful for whatever amount you can give. 

We would be absolutely thrilled with a monthly donation to support your child’s learning journey with new materials for indoor and outdoor explorations. Some of our creative materials are consumable, meaning they get used and must be replenished. Your regular donation, in whatever size you can manage, is greatly appreciated. 

Your donation will go directly to the children. We are always looking to improve our offerings, our indoor spaces, and our outdoor learning environment. Every donation will be used to bring new opportunities for your child including digital technologies to support our growing focus on digital landscapes, literacy, and numeracy learning supports, creative arts materials, music and movement items, and other developmental learning supports. 

We are always looking for open-ended materials to include in our proposals for play and explorations. If you have been collecting or intend on collecting some materials, please contact the office to discuss the useability of the materials. All materials must arrive to the school clean and ready for the children to use. Materials must be in clearly labelled containers or boxes. Loose materials are challenging for us to manage and store. Containers we can reuse are most helpful. We can discuss options with you when you contact us. 

Absolutely! We are always looking for opportunities to connect with the community. Whether you know of a business or a person looking to support the development of young hearts and minds, we would love to make this connection. We thank you for your efforts in helping us build community relationships with those willing to invest in the future of our world through the children. Please contact the office to let us know if you have referred someone to our Giving Tree Initiative so we are prepared for their call.
