A few weeks ago I got to meet Arabelle and her Nana, Marlo.
Arabelle is a fun-loving 4-year-old. And she LOVES day care. Marlo says Arabelle thrives on the structure and stability, as many 4-year-olds do.
The stability is particularly important for Arabelle.
“Day care is a happy, consistent spot for her,” Marlo told me. “And that’s been huge for us because so much in her life is not consistent.”
Marlo took in her granddaughter three years ago, during a time when neither of parents were able to provide that care.
Marlo never envisioned that she’d be raising a grandchild and said she would not have been able to carry out this task without the support of the Keene Day Care Center. Without tuition assistance daycare would not have been within their reach.
Marlo has several chronic health conditions and said she would have had great difficulty having to provide 24/7 care for her granddaughter. Being able to send Arabelle to day care has helped both Marlo and Arabelle.
“They are such a wonderful resource,” Marlo said.
MUW provides funding to Keene Day Care Center to help the center provide tuition assistance to families who otherwise would not be able to attend.
We are happy that, with the community’s support, we’re able to fight for Arabelle and Marlo.
