It was only 6:51 a.m. but already a small hand was rattling the door. When Julie Glasgow opened it, there stood Malachi.
It was the first day at the Barbara H. Curtis Center and he couldn’t wait another minute. He was ready.
Sunrise that morning was at 6:49.
Malachi is 3 and he was the first student to be enrolled at the Curtis Center. He now also holds the distinction of the first to arrive. Every. Day. Last. Week.
We naturally love his enthusiasm – it embodies everything we hoped the Curtis Center would be. So we wanted to share a snapshot from our opening day.
In addition to Malachi, the Curtis Center welcomed more than 40 other enthusiastic students. Parents dropped off, then teachers met and welcomed the children who immediately began the very serious work of playing together and learning.
All of this is possible thanks to you – dear friends, donors, and our partner DHIC, Inc. Thank you for sharing the vision and making it happen, redefining childcare and preschool opportunities in Raleigh’s Washington Terrace community.
