Construction wraps up at the ELC.

On Sunday, April 30, The Crisis Nursery Youth Advisory Board (YAB) will be volunteering at the opening of the Early Learning Center (ELC).

The ELC has been under construction for the past two years and will open its doors to Pre-K, Kindergarten, and First grade students for the 2023-2024 school year. The opening of the ELC signals the consolidation of the two Lower School campuses, and the closing of Highcroft. 

YAB “supports the greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery, which is a place where parents can drop off their kids for day-care, so that they’re out of an abusive home,” says Payton Smith ‘24, one of the co-chairs of YAB.

At this event, there will be fun activities like bean bag toss, face painting, and packing MATTER Packs. The MATTER Packs are similar to the ones many groups packed at Legacy Day earlier this year and will be donated to the Minneapolis Crisis Nursery. 

“It’s a community event, bringing everyone together to celebrate the opening of the Early Learning Center,” says Smith. 

While the event is aimed at families who have children that attend the ELC, students and community members of all ages are welcome.
