At Cambridgeport Children's Center (aka Tot lot), our mission is to provide a nurturing and inclusive early childhood educational experience based on a Reggio-inspired philosophy that values diversity and respect.  We actively promote partnerships between children, families, teachers, & the community.

Dear Friend of Tot Lot,

Family Fun Day, October 2014

Family Fun Day, October 2014

As a Tot Lot parent, I love getting the “sign out” report about my daughter Serena’s day when I pick her up. Whether she was doing yoga, learning to make a violin, painting her own masterpiece, tending vegetables in the garden, building structures, cooking pizza, or making new discoveries on a nature walk, I am amazed at the creative experiential education she is receiving.          

"The thoughtfulness and care that Tot Lot invests in our future is inspiring."

Tot Lot also aims to nurture a sense of community in Cambridgeport and beyond. Through Family Fun Day, the Art Show at Gallery 263, and the annual Rhythm & Spice Party, we want to continue to connect with alumni families and the local community and share the varied and rich environment where we work and play together.

My appreciation for the Tot Lot community is why, on behalf of the fundraising committee, I’m asking for your contribution during Tot Lot’s annual appeal. Last year, through the generous support of the families and friends of Tot Lot, donations totaling over $20,000 were used for new tables, chairs, rugs, and cubbies. This year, the staff has identified the need for musical instruments, books, and math materials, as well as other items to support the re-accreditation process.  Donated funds also support educational activities beyond Tot Lot’s doors such as swim lessons at MIT and the annual Tot Lot field trip.

We need your help!  Please donate this year to enhance Tot Lot’s educational program. Your tax-deductible contribution is only one link away.

One more thing to mention… the COMPANY MATCH!  Inquire at your workplace if they provide a company match for donations, as this is a terrific way to double the impact of your contribution.

Tot Lot is a place that not only keeps our children safe and loved, but enriched, educated, and infused with joy and life. We want this passion to grow with our children and hope it will spread to our community at large! Please click the link and make a much-needed donation. Forward the link to friends and family! Your gift, in any amount, is so important and deeply appreciated.  

Thank you!
