We promote a partnership between teachers, children and their families to build a stimulating learning environment that allows children to develop to their full potential and become active members of the community.
NLF is supported predominantly by its parents—currently, 60% of operating revenue comes from parent-paid fees and fully 100% of the parents give either time or money to NLF. Another 33% come from government grants and contracts, and the balance through programmatic fundraising, grants and donations. NLF’s parents take a strong leadership role in special events and fundraising through the orchestrating of theater productions, auctions, food booths, garage sales, and similar community activities. These events are totally parent and staff driven with work committees assuming responsibility for coordinating all aspects of an event from publicity to costumes to production.
