Currently, NorthStar is extending its Campaign to raise $1,000,000 to repay $700,000 in loans and raise $300,000 for our equipment.
Our new Early Education Academy & Community Center will:
Double NorthStar’s current full-time enrollment capacity, serving a total of 135 children and families
Provide state-of-the-art, purpose built early education facilities, best preparing our children for their futures and our future
Serve as a regional laboratory school for best practices and professional development for the entire South Coast
Provide the community with access to exploratory play-spaces, community rooms, and our commercial kitchen, all while addressing urban blight.
Join us in investing in our children, our community, and our future!
