I can think of at least 3 moms who I greatly admire and respect…and whose children attend C.D.P. (Child Development Program).
I’ve always heard wonderful things about this preschool, which up until now
has been located at the First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans for
almost 35 years.
C.D.P. is getting the boot to make room for the new French Immersion charter school, Lycee Francais de la Nouvelle-Orleans.
But as one C.D.P. teacher puts it in this WWL news report, “We really have come back to the idea that we are not the
building…We’re our school, and our people and our children, and we can be that anywhere.”
I think anyone living in New Orleans, especially those of us who braved “the storm” can relate to this idea.
And one other thing: We always come back stronger.
C.D.P. has found a new home but it is in need of renovations…which cost
money. So parents are rallying and the school is holding a Spring Fair
to raise funds.
As a community, as a PARENT community committed to supporting each other, come enjoy this wonderful event that will showcase:
carnival games; and
The C.D.P. Fair is this Saturday, March 19th from 10-5pm at Palmer Park (corner of Carrollton & Claiborne Avenues).
