Please support our 2013 Annual Appeal!

DCP has been providing the highest quality programs for the children of the Monadnock region of New Hampshire for almost 50 years, and we can’t do it without you–that’s why “Community” is in our name! Your contribution in any amount helps bridge the gap between income from student tuitions and actual expenses.  Please read the short letter found at http://www.scribd.com/doc/187332024/Appeal-Letter-Link-Letter  At the bottom you’ll find a simple form that you can use to make a real difference for DCP and the children we serve.  Just print, clip, and mail it to us.

Thank you for your support!

Wanted: Dublin Community Preschool Alumni!

Whether you are five or 55 or anywhere in between, if you attended Dublin Community Preschool, we want to hear from you!

            2014 marks our 50th year of providing quality early education to children of the Monadnock region.  We want to hear your stories.  We want to know what made an impression.  Perhaps you remember especially enjoying a certain theme.  Maybe you met your first or best friend at Dublin Community Preschool.  Maybe a certain teacher touched your heart or inspired you somehow.  Maybe a funny incident stands out when you think back. No memory is too insignificant to share.

            For those of you alumni that are grown up and out in the world, let us know what you are up to and where you live now.

            Former staff members, we want your stories and memories too!  Every one of you helped to shape what DCP is today.

            We want to compile your anecdotes and create a larger story – a memory board to share.  We are gearing up for a big celebration this summer at Dublin Day in July.  Since we are still in the planning stages for possible events and activities for our 50th celebration, your input is welcome.  Alumni, this event is for all of you!  Let us know how you want to celebrate.

            We ask parents of alumni who may live out of the area to please forward this message!

            Here’s how to get in touch:  e-mail us at cathy@dublinpreschool.org or mail your story to:  DCP, 1281C Main Street, Dublin, NH 03444 Attn:  Cathy.
