Preschool Advantage will recognize Union Hill Church Preschool of Denville at their upcoming Turning Leaves Annual Benefit.  Salerno Duane Auto Group and Robert Ward will also be honored by the nonprofit organization.  James McNamee will be recognized in memoriam for his many years of support.  Preschool Advantage funds an early education for children whose families cannot afford the cost of quality preschool. 

“It is an honor to be part of the Preschool Advantage mission”, says Jill Head, Director.   “These early years are the most impressionable years; a time for children to develop a strong foundation in confidence, self-esteem, and a love for learning. Partnering with Preschool Advantage has given Union Hill Church

Preschool the opportunity to be an important part of so many children's lives that may never have had the option to go to preschool.  Every child deserves to grow both emotionally and academically in a safe loving environment."  For the 2017-2018 academic year, Union Hill Church Preschool will educate five Preschool Advantage students.

There are thousands of families in New Jersey who cannot afford to provide their children with early education.  By the age of three, children from lower income families are already developmentally behind their more affluent peers.  Research shows the most efficient and effective way to equalize that gap is to give children a quality preschool education so they can enter kindergarten ready to learn and succeed.  Children who complete the four-year-old program at Union Hill Church Preschool are kindergarten ready. 

The 2017 Turning Leaves Annual Benefit will be held at the Westin Governor Morris Hotel in Morristown on Thursday October 19th at 6pm.  Preschool Advantage would like to extend an invitation to the Benefit to the community.  Details are available on the Preschool Advantage website, www.preschooladvantage.org.

 

Preschool Advantage has the vision that all children should have access to high quality early education. Together with its donors, supporters, volunteers, and community partners, Preschool Advantage seeks to provide opportunities for a lifetime of learning that will create a better world for its students, their families, and the community. For sponsorship opportunities for Turning Leaves or to learn more about Preschool Advantage, please call 973-532-2501 or visit our website at www.preschooladvantage.org .
