Building a Sustainable Environment for Children to Thrive!!

How Venture Funds are Used
Not sure if you knew this, but our center is a non-profit organization.  This means that revenues are used to push our educational agenda and create a space for children to thrive and fully prepare for elementary school. Your contributions, grants and donations fulfill needs in several areas:

  • Teaching Children
  • Teaching Teachers
  • Teaching Families 
  • Helping to Lead in areas that increases Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) within our community 
  • Lastly, help families in need of services due to financial hardships. 


Venture Philosophy
Our practice within the classroom and with our families is supported by research-based theories, which are used to close the achievement gap for children who might otherwise have very limited opportunities for elementary success. Educational inequities is a important and widely discussed subject; therefore, we work hard and only partner with those who have the same goal.  

Cathy is part of the Leadership Team and is the Infant Toddler Supervisor.  With over 25 years of experience, Cathy brings extensive knowledge in policies on literacy and social-emotional development, quality, learning standards and assessments, especially in the early Pre-K years.  After receiving her Directors certification, she's been working hard to finish her degree in early childhood education!  Her dedication to the organization has earned her numerous awards and not to mention parent recommendations and acknowledgements for superior knowledge of the program.
