An anonymous donor is encouraging people to donate to Niagara Nursery School by matching donations up to $10,000.

The funding will go towards the $2 million nursery school expansion at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Community Centre.

“We have had a community member come forward and offer to match all donations up to $10,000 in support of the expansion of Niagara Nursery School," said Candice Penny, executive director of the school.

“All donations will help us prepare to welcome infants, toddlers, and pre-school friends to our new school space in September 2021.”

There are currently over 150 children on the waiting list for Niagara Nursery school, and this expansion is essential in supporting the young families moving into the Niagara area, Penny said.

So far the school has raised $30,000 of its $100,000 goal since launching the campaign in November 2020.

“We have been astounded by the community support we have received," Penny said.

She added the town is "doing a fantastic job overseeing the expansion and everything is running on time."

The school hopes to be in the new building at the community centre by fall.
