As many of you know, the closure of Little People’s Learning Center due to the Coronavirus epidemic has essentially eliminated all work and earnings for our employees.
Despite this, in light of the difficulty families are facing, we have made the decision to waive tuition during this temporary closure. While this is the right decision, it does reduce our ability to support our staff financially during this time.
Staff have been working hard on at home learning opportunities and curriculum planning but we have had to lay staff off as of March 25th, and we want to do everything in our power to support them and make sure this amazing team is still around when we reopen.
To achieve this goal, we have established a “Supplemental Income Fund” to support our committed employees. The goal of the fund will be to provide financial assistance to those staff members in need. If you are in a financial position and are able to support us, 100 percent of the net earnings of all contributions will go directly to staff in need.
