A Berry Special Day for Children...
Watch this space for news of our 2016 Strawberry Festival, the first Saturday in May at Old North Durham Park!
The Strawberry Festival is a community event in Durham, NC, that supports Central Park School for Children. For more than a decade, we've been chopping berries, painting signs, spearing juicy lemons with spicy peppermint sticks, enjoying fantastic local artists, and creating a day each year where everyone can be a kid again.
Proceeds from the Strawberry Festival support project-based learning and integrated arts at CPSC.
Central Park School for Children, a tuition-free public charter school, is committed to nurturing and guiding the natural eagerness of each child to explore, grow, and relate to others. The school is founded on three principles:
- children are naturally full of life, power and confidence
- the best available research should guide our methods
- children develop best in a community where curiosity, challenges, and learning are valued
The school is creating a community of partners to guide, cherish and be amazed by the children.
