Dear Friends, 

For 47 years, Children’s Circle has taught kids to play, to imagine, to listen and communicate, and to care for each other and the world around them.  It has nourished and sustained its families. If you are reading this letter, you know this because you are a member of the Children’s Circle community, and you know how magical a place it is. 

When the Covid-19 crisis happened, the school could no longer sustain its ongoing costs, and at the same time, many families were facing increased financial hardship. CCNS needed a financial boost to be able to keep the school open with important safety modifications, and Friends of Children's Circle was established to help. Although originally created to help specifically with Covid-19 related issues, our goal is for this organization to be a welcomed addition to our community and provide support for years to come.  
For those in the position to do so, your donations will go a long way toward sustaining the school. All contributions are valued. Please keep Friends of Children’s Circle in mind when you are planning your annual donations to organizations, or perhaps if you stub your toe and your child runs to get you a glass of water.
We have the opportunity to help future generations of children and parents learn through play just as our families did at Children’s Circle. If you would like to donate, please send money via Venmo to @friendsofccns, via Zelle to or write a check made out to Friends of Children's Circle Nursery School and send it to Friends of CCNS, 6328 Woodman Avenue, Van Nuys, CA 91401.
Thank you so much for your support.
