With great enthusiasm, we welcome the arrival of this new season, brimming with exciting and innovative activities. Your ongoing support is crucial to our endeavors, and we are reaching out for assistance on two fronts.

Firstly, we are seeking help in acquiring new garden beds for our garden. If you possess the skills to construct these beds or can aid us in procuring them, kindly reach out to me at your earliest convenience.

Secondly, we are excited about the prospect of taking the children on several enriching trips this summer. If you have the means to support the costs associated with these outings, we kindly request your donation. Contributions can be sent to Uni Pres Kindercottage, with "Summer Field Trips" noted in the memo line.
