LYNCHBURG, Va. – Due to not being financially sustainable, Lynchburg is losing one of its preschools.
This week, the president of HumanKind, which runs the Little Wings Preschool, told parents in a letter, that school is closing.
In June, 10 News reported on about 10 children who were enrolled thanks to a state grant.
Program officials tell 10 News:
- 10 four-year-old Head Start children enrolled through the Smart Beginnings partnership will go to kindergarten this fall.
- Three additional 4 year olds will go to kindergarten.
- 10 will be four years old this fall and will qualify for Virginia Preschool Initiative, Head Start, or may choose another private program.
- Three will be three years old this fall and may qualify for Head Start’s 3-year-old program or choose another private program.
HumanKind has promised to help other parents’ transition.
The six full-time staff members will receive a severance.
Little Wings will close on July 31st.
