A great buy for our community: Seeds of Learning

The board of directors of Seeds of Learning Early Care and Education Center hope you will join them at this year’s annual fund-raiser, “One Big Family,” on Saturday, April 18.

The directors have been hard at work soliciting donations and seeking sponsors, so all money raised that night will directly benefit the children enrolled at Seeds.

When asked, “Why be involved with Seeds,” Jan Santopiertro replied that the board “knows the value of quality early childhood education, and wants to support what is happening at Seeds.”

Current board president Roger Scott notes, “I can personally attest to the value Seeds adds to both our community and individual families.  Many years ago I maintained a delicate and challenging balance between Air Force career and single parent.  In those days I would have paid almost any price for a Seeds in my neighborhood.  Pagosa Springs needs to understand what a great buy Seeds is for our community.”

Seeds of Learning provides a certified high-quality preschool, where preschoolers become kindergarten-ready in all disciplines required.

Lyn Dryburgh comments, “Whether it’s making sure that families have access to quality child care, or making sure that children receive the best educational opportunities we can give them, we must remain committed to these needs because our children are our future. The whole family is nurtured by the staff at Seeds for the sake of the child.”

Board member Dan McVeigh also serves on the Parent Advisory Committee and believes, “it is important to be involved in the educational progress of my son. The staff and teachers do such great work with the students and I appreciate the opportunity to help oversee the direction of Seeds of Learning through my involvement on the board.”

Board members will help host the Chamber of Commerce SunDowner on March 25, at Seeds of Learning. They invite you to come by, tour the facility, meet the teachers and staff and maybe even get a glimpse of some of the decorations that will adorn the Pagosa Springs Community Center on April 18.

Buy your tickets for “One Big Family” while you are there. Tickets are $35 and are also available at the Chamber of Commerce and Switchback Mountain Wear.
