WHAT IS OUR GOAL?
TALY FOUNDATION will send 50 new children to preschool for the 2016-2017 school year. As part of this sponsorship, the children will receive the benefits and opportunities to learn and grow that so many of their peers already experience.
In Framingham, MA alone there are hundreds of preschool-aged children whose families are not able to afford the significant cost associated with a quality early childhood education. These children are already behind compared to their peers and the achievement gap for them will continue to grow.
HOW WILL YOUR DONATION BENEFIT A CHILD?
- Full day classroom experience
- Literacy & numeracy
- Social & emotional development
- Physical activity
- Transportation to & from school
- Meaningful playtime with children their own age
- The opportunity to succeed in school & life
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
The average cost of preschool is $10,000 per year per child. As expensive as this sounds, it is far less expensive than having our children enter a classroom for the first time at 5 years old and try to catch up with their preschool-educated peers via services such as speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, behavior regulation, and tutoring.
We know $10,000 is something we all wish we could give to sponsor a preschool child and certainly understand that is not always a reality. If you cannot commit to that amount, please give at a level at which you are comfortable. Your donation will be combined with other members of our Early Impact Project to collaboratively sponsor a child. Please help us reach our goal of sending at least 50 children to preschool in August of this year. Early Impact truly does make a difference in the life of a child.
