after only 3 days the feeling of support from our community has been overwhelming. We introduced our first fundraiser, a date night for parents to drop their children off with us on a Friday evening. The response for the event was great and spaces filled up in 2 days. We opened another Friday because of the excellent response and have almost filled that up in 48 hours as well. We will have parents pay directly to this account to show the progress we are making! I'm overjoyed by the supportive comments and praise for our school.
"Maybe we can talk. My company does organic soils and I MAY be able to get some donated through a local garden center" -Tommy wade varnado
"This is the school I work at and where my daughter goes to school. It's an amazing experience working here and also seeing the development of not only my child but the children I reach as well. Lauren (the owner) is the most hard working, caring person I know. " -Jess Sutyla
"Bella Mente is a wonderful place of learning for young children in west Seattle. The children learn by experiencing, by pursuing their interests, and by having their natural curiosity fueled." -Susan Hollinsworth
"This is my school, my second home, and my family. Please help us create this incredible place for our children." -Cascade Lueder
Thank you so much everyone for your support. I know it's going to be a huge challenge to make our goal but hearing that you are pulling for us gives us the energy to work that much harder to make it happen!
