Why we are different
Unlike grade schools, who welcome returning students, Pre-K populations are often new and unknown.

CDP worked diligently to digitalize, organize and complete a database list before uploading it to the school’s email marketing software. After a little training, the Children’s House staff was able to send email invitations for its large annual fundraising event, bringing down costs and greatly improving its effectiveness in reaching people!
