Fund the expansion and improvement of our preschool program which integrates cultural activities in everyday learning and development

The India Community Center was conceived as a place where every generation of the Indian Diaspora could find comfort in various facets of their culture, preserve and practice unique traditions and celebrate festivals and social milestones in a welcoming environment.

As we stepped in 2015, the first challenge we faced is to provide our preschool with maximum resources to reach its full potential in shaping our kids for a better future. The ICC preschool is a culturally stimulating space that facilitates social, emotional, physical and cognitive development in kids.

At ICC, we take pride in our heritage and we want our kids to explore our heritage through experiential activities in every day life. We aim to provide a progressive environment designed to help our kids explore our Indian identity and Indian traditions. With your support and contribution, you can help us build a bridge between our ethnic values and everyday learning at school.

Challenges faced by our preschool

- Limited resources to increase the classroom space and convert another room of the facility for existing preschool program.

- Limited resources to offer more paid speciality programs for children such as theatre, dance/music

- Limited resources to expand and build a new playground for kids.

Preschool goals- next 2 years

- To have a new playground. Provide new and safe outdoor equipment and play area for our preschoolers.

- Get licensed to use an additional space for the preschool and expand classroom capacity by 860 sq feet.

- Hire 2 additional certified Instructors to increase the number of enriched activties on a daily basis.

- Start a process for transitional Kindergarten classroom for our 4+ students
