Giving support for Teacher’s Professional Development

One of the biggest influences on program quality is our ability to attract and retain qualified teachers. We must offer teachers competitive wages and opportunities for professional development. When teachers have support for their reflective practice and continuous professional renewal, our school, our program and our children directly benefit. In addition to our in-service training, there are professional events that we hope our teachers will attend. If you would like to support teachers professional growth, please contact us so that we can discuss the specific events our teachers will attend.

One example of a professional event that we encourage our teachers to attend is The NAREA Summer Conference, hosted by North American Reggio Emilia Alliance in collaboration with Reggio Children.

High quality educational programs require significant investment and The Willows Nursery School, though a for-profit organization, can benefit from support for the school that goes beyond that given through tuition payments. Gifts to The Willows Nursery School do not qualify as tax-deductible.
For more information or advice about gifts to schools that are for-profit, consult a certified public accountant (CPA) or read IRS Publication 17, available on the IRS Web site (
