In addition to raising money from the sale of magic wands and snow crowns for those affected to the recent storms, The Garden City Nursery School also extend an invitation to the families of The Blackheath Pre-K in Long Beach, which was devastated by Sandy. Current GCNS attendees as well as alumni purchased tickets and donated them for The Blackheath families to attend.Garden City Nursery School Director, Ann Amengual said, “Not only was this event a wonderful live theater experience for our children, but it was also a “teachable moment” where the children learn empathy and compassion by taking actions that help others and watching parents who model kindness, generosity and compassion. On all counts, the Children’s Theater event was a huge success and we’re looking forward raising additional funds for those affected at our Holiday Boutique next Wednesday, and invite the community to join us to do the same.”For information regarding the Holiday Boutique, please call 516.481-7765.The Garden City Nursery School, a parent cooperative founded in 1951, is registered and chartered by the New York State Department of Education.
