Dear Friends and Supporters of Happy Valley,
We are writing today to inform you of a recent decision which will force change and foster new beginnings for our school. Happy Valley will need to find a new home by August 1, 2020.
For fifty years we’ve called this farm ours. It has brought joy, adventure, and so much more to countless children and adults alike; and this news carries conflicting feelings of loss and hope for our future in a new setting. We have been exceedingly fortunate, but understand that the owners of this property, who have selflessly offered our school a place to grow, is no longer able to provide this facility.
In the coming days and months, we are doing all that we can to ensure our school is able to continue. This includes seeking out the purchase or lease of a property in Peterborough that fits with our high standards of quality and affordability, with natural surroundings to foster a love and appreciation for the natural world.
This is a sensitive matter for all, and we are relying on your support to help sustain our mission. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation in honor of Happy Valley and our future legacy.
We are humbled by the ongoing generosity of our community, and hope that we can rely on you to help sustain our legacy of providing early childhood education for our most valuable asset, the children of our region.
Thank you, Happy Valley Staff and Board
