(This amendment provides $1.2 million GF to purchase and renovate property, playground equipment, security, phones and supplies for the Preschool Academy. For more than 40 years, NSU's Preschool Academy, has helped thousands of families and children throughout Hampton Roads by providing a safe and nurturing environment to learn and to grow. Affiliated with NSU's School of Education, the Preschool Academy is a full and part-time early childhood and care program for children ages 2.5 through 4.5 years old. The Academy is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) — the nation's leading organization for early childhood professionals, and licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services. The Academy is currently located in one of the University's oldest facilities, which is not conducive to the program's continued evolution and future expansion. Accordingly, NSU requests funding to identify a new standalone facility for the Academy and to support program upgrades, including funds to purchase and renovate a property contiguous to the NSU campus; new playground equipment; doorbell camera, door entry lock and security cameras; telephones; four portable handwashing sinks; three stackable washing machine/dryer combinations; and various supplies.)
