Friends of the North Syracuse Early Education Program, Inc.
Friends of the North Syracuse Early Education Program (aka Friends of NSEEP or FNSEEP) was started in 2006 to raise funds to support an amazing preschool known as the North Syracuse Early Education Program at Main Street School located in the heart of North Syracuse, NY. The Early Education Program is considered part of the North Syracuse Central School District, but your family need NOT reside in the district to enroll your child. The children (ages 3-4) who attend come from all over the Central New York area to receive a top-quality education from New York State certified special education teachers and therapists with years of experience to help each child succeed in the classroom, out in the world, and be kindergarten-ready.
The North Syracuse Early Education Program receives its funding from New York State & Onondaga County, as well as, tuition from families; it does NOT receive funding from the North Syracuse Central School District. Due to budget cuts, rising costs, and the unique requirements of such a special program, there is a need to acquire financial support from other sources. Friends of NSEEP attempts to bring in funds to enhance the school through fundraising events such as the Therapy Ball & the Walk-A-Thon, applying for grants, and accepting monetary donations from individuals & businesses. In the past, these funds have been used to establish a library, modernize the physical therapy room, replace gymnasium & indoor playroom equipment, upgrade school technology, support the snack program, repair the playground, and provide the school staff with training & development opportunities (just to name a few). FNSEEP is a grassroots fundraising 501(c)(3) organization made up of dedicated volunteers – teachers, parents & families of past/present students, and caring members of the community – anyone can join!
