As many of you may have already heard, Mariposa will be closing its doors at the conclusion of the 2017-2018 school year.
As Mariposa entered its 10th year, it faced some major economic and space related challenges that could not be overcome. As a result of those recent challenges, the Board has decided that Mariposa will cease providing services to children and families on June 30, 2018.
Mariposa is home to the most dedicated and amazing teachers, children and families. With your support we have remained devoted to our mission of providing high quality early childhood programs while serving families that have limited resources. However, the modest tuition and dedication to quality that make the school so special, also come with built in financial vulnerabilities.
Although this is a bittersweet time for all of us, we intend to focus on our current children and families in the Pre-K classroom and all of the meaningful and lasting work Mariposa has done with hundreds of children and families over the past ten years.
We are so proud of all we have accomplished with your support. We hope that each of you will join us in celebrating our work and will continue to carry a small piece of Mariposa with you to preserve our legacy
