Help Save Mini Einstein's Learning Center
Mini Einsteins Learning Center (MELC) was founded in 2010 by Samantha Sciacca and her husband, a US Army war veteran, William. Since opening its doors, MELC has provided childcare for hundreds of families, giving children a save environment to learn and grow in. MELC focuses on education, providing a Kindergarten Readiness Class for children and are one of the few centers to have three teachers per classroom for children under 3 and 2 teachers plus an assistant in our older classrooms, ensuring each child has the attention they need in order to grow and learn every minute of every day. From its staff, to its children, to its parents, MELC is a family.
MELC has been growing like crazy. In September of 2015 MELC relocated to a bigger facility located in a vacant building that once was Woodway Elementary School (owned by the Edmonds School District). Here, with the help of the community, staff and parents, MELC remodeled their entire unit turning 9,400 sq feet into an open, bright and top notch facility for children to play and learn in.
Per the contract with Edmonds School District, the space was to be MELC's until June, 2016. At that time, the school district would acquire the building back, and all tenants in the building would need to find a new space.
On January 17th, 2015 MELC was turned upside down with news that the Edmonds School District wants to acquire the building back this June (2015). Giving MELC less than 4 months to find a new location and move over 100 families. While MELC understands the School Districts needs, it also is concerned with the financial burden this will leave on the families at MELC. The center is forced to move very quickly and into a higher priced building that will also require remodeling.
MELC needs your help. In order to move locations as quickly as they need to, remodel to fit the needs of their children and prepare to pay an increased rent, a substantial amount of money needs to be raised. Anything that you can donate will be greatly appreciated by Samantha, William, the Staff and the 100 families of MELC.
