Be our partner in supporting your community's youth.
Sutter Park Preschool is home to Worthington Schools' Early Childhood Program. Half of our students have been identified with special needs and half are typically developing peers who serve as role models in the program. In addition to primary teachers, our students have access to speech/language pathologists, occupational therapists, adapted physical education teachers and physical therapists.
Currently, Sutter Park Preschool has a playground that makes it challenging for some students to play independently along side their friends and peers.
OUR VISION IS THE CREATION OF AN ALL-INCLUSIVE, OUTDOOR LEARNING ENVIRONMENT THAT IS SAFE, STIMULATING, AND SUPPORTIVE OF THE LEARNING GOALS CREATED FOR EACH CHILD ATTENDING SUTTER PARK PRESCHOOL.
Together with the community, the Sutter Park PTA is fundraising to build an all-inclusive, outdoor learning space, that all students in our school can enjoy.
Due to the nature of specialized equipment to ensure safety and education, our goal is to raise $375,000 with ongoing fundraising efforts for proper maintenance, upkeep and surface replacement that will occur approximately every 10 years.
We hope to meet our goal through various fundraisers, corporate donations, and grant opportunities.
Each piece of desired equipment has been specially chosen to provide meaningful play opportunities. Our hope is for students to learn methods of play while at school and to enjoy the space outside of school hours with their loved ones for extra therapy disguised as "play."
Most importantly, Sutter Park believes in a spirit of inclusivity. Special needs students will be able to play side-by-side with their peers, cultivating a collection of inclusive and kind members of our community.
The possibilities are endless!
