When you buy a wreath or donate to Windy Row Learning Center, the money you give us goes directly to our scholarship fund to support one-on-one afterschool tutoring for children who cannot read. Pay for our executive director and out specially trained tutors comes out of our operating expenses, which are separate from our scholarship fund. Wreaths are available on November 23 during the Holiday Stroll in Peterborough, NH, at both the Unitarian Universalist Church and the Conval High School Craft Fair. They are also available at Windy Row (corner Windy Row & Union Street, West Peterborough) on the morning of November 30. We will deliver within the greater Peterborough area for multiple orders at the same location. Thank you for your support.
Windy Row Learning Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. When we were originally founded in 2003, thanks to a generous one-time grant, we were able to offer our specialized one-on-one tutoring for free. We did not charge any tuition. Now we have a generous sliding scale, with the goal of never turning away a child for financial reasons. Still, many families come to us unable to pay the full tuition. Their children have usually spent years in one program after another, misdiagnosed, blamed for their inability to read and defeated by repeated failure. We bring them up to grade level, restore their confidence and give them the skills to read and keep on reading. The instructional methods and programs we use (including Orton-Gillingham) are internationally known; our tutors are endlessly inventive, patient and encouraging.
Every year at least half of our students need scholarship support. Your donation gives a child the gift of reading.
