Update on Preschool Coming to Immanuel


Things are bustling on Zabriskie's lower level, as we get ready for Valley Drive Cooperative Preschool's relocation to Immanuel this September.

Immanuel's Nursery Director, Gilma Balcarcel, and Sunday School Coordinator, Linda Serabian, spent last Saturday cleaning out and tidying the nursery. The room looks fantastic, and we'll be proceeding with construction of a new second door to the nursery shortly. Tom Kerns and a preschool representative met with the City of Alexandria reviewer last week, and the building permit was approved Monday. Cub Run Builders will install the door.

Yesterday a work crew of Sunday School teachers and friends cleaned out the classrooms and the music director's office, which has been relocated to the former Treasurer's office. Linda and Leah Wilson already cleared the rooms of furniture, and contacted groups Immanuel supports through Outreach (Community Lodging, ALIVE, etc.) to find the furniture a new home; serendipitously, the Child & Family Network Centers can use some. While most has been spoken for, there may be some tables and small chairs left. Please contact Lean at leah.wilson4@verizon.net or Linda at serabian@somaarchitects.com, if interested.

Finally, on Monday, painting will start in the Sunday School classrooms.
