My husband and I both own a small business and I’m a REALTOR. My son starts kindergarten this year! The foundation to his future. Learning to read, write, count etc. I have no formal training to teach him. Being a small business owner and a realtor requires our commitment 100% of the time. We never get a day off. The cost of our lost opportunity with having to miss work to be able to provide childcare and educational attention to our children could bankrupt our household. This grant will assist us in getting our kids a quality education in a safe environment. It will allow us to continue to run our small businesses and have a positive economic impact on our community. It will give my kindergartener a chance of a great first impression of school for a brighter future of learning.
