Pūnana Leo o Mānoa is such a preschool serving children ages 3-5 and
their families. The school is run and maintained by parents and teachers. In 1995, the school first opened its doors at
Kawaiahaʻo Church. In the last few years, the churchʻs strategic
priorities changed and our preschool had to find a new home. Through
the hard work and donations of a committed group of parents and
teachers, the school was moved to a wonderful new location in Mānoa,
right across from the University of Hawaiʻi, as of August 2012. The
parent support organization was able to raise thousands of dollars for
the move and renovation of the new facility in under a year. However,
the new location remains without an outdoor play area that is shaded.
Please help us to create a nurturing and safe environment for Hawaiian
language immersion early education. $12,000 would allow Pūnana Leo o
Mānoa to erect a shade structure so that the keiki can play safely
outdoors. Additional money would go toward outdoor play equipment.
