Why Support The Glen?

The Glen is committed to providing an authentic Montessori environment for children ages eight weeks – 6th grade.  In the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, this has meant being inventive – finding new ways to translate Montessori pedagogy to an online environment, new screening procedures, wearing masks, and much more.

As the pandemic comes to a close (we hope!), the greatest need at The Glen is the support of our families. As families are recovering from the COVID-19 health crisis, many remain deeply affected financially.  A secure child care situation is critical to a parent’s ability to go back to work and re-engage in the workforce.

At the Glen, we are working hard to meet the needs of families in uncertain financial situations and help them maintain child care, with consistent caregivers and routines, through the pandemic recovery and beyond.

Your gift today will help parents rest a little easier – so no family has to worry about child care because of a financial crisis this year.

We would like to thank the following individuals, foundations and corporations who have supported The Glen!
