FALMOUTH-MA, - On Saturday, December 1 the Falmouth campus of the Cape Conservatory will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:30 a.m. to commemorate a new preschool playground. Thanks to generous donations from the Valle Group and former Cape Symphony & Conservatory trustee Robert Schofield, the Conservatory was able to excavate the land behind the Conservatory, creating a more secure but picturesque setting for the new playground overlooking Beebe Woods. Previously, the playground was adjacent to the Conservatory’s parking lot.
The public is invited to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony and enjoy complimentary hot cider and delicious baked goods from Maison Villatte. Along with the playground, guests are encouraged to visit the Conservatory’s recently-expanded preschool classroom and participate in a make-and-take craft.
The Conservatory preschool has grown in size and stature under the leadership of Executive Director Stephanie Weaver and Preschool Director Anne Kullas. “In addition to our nurturing and highly skilled preschool teachers Jaime Ogilvy, Alison McGrail, and Kerry Jones, we offer an arts-enriched curriculum including a Suzuki-inspired violin program that is taught as core curriculum. It’s an exciting time to be a preschooler at the Cape Conservatory,” said Weaver.
Work on the preschool playground began over the summer. The next step is to fundraise for new playground equipment. “Unfortunately, the wood was rotten on our former playground structure and we were not able to move it. We are now fundraising for new equipment,” explained Weaver. “With a goal of $4,000, we can wrap up payment of the recently installed fencing, and acquire safe, fun new play structures.”
