DOYLESTOWN, PA – Doylestown Health has launched a new initiative in the final stages of the Children’s Village Rebuild project to help furnish, supply, and equip the new facility currently under construction on the hospital’s campus. The goal of this initiative is to encourage engagement and involvement from the community in helping to “fill the bucket” as the new building nears completion.
Children’s Village is an early childhood education center that provides a rewarding and nurturing experience for the children of Doylestown Hospital Associates and families in the community. As a fully licensed and National Association for the Education of Young Children accredited school, the new Children’s Village facility will continue to prioritize the social, physical, emotional, and cognitive development of all children. The school is designed to help those enrolled reach their full potential by creating a dynamic environment for learning and playing.
The former Children’s Village facility, which operated on the hospital campus for 35 years, was destroyed by a tornado in August 2020. While no one was seriously injured, Children’s Village was damaged beyond repair. Soon after, Doylestown Health announced that the rebuild would become a new priority of ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health. Thanks to the early support of lead donors and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program, the structure of the new facility is nearly complete.
Donations towards this initiative will help outfit the indoor and outdoor spaces with equipment and supplies that will best allow our teachers to build a safe, educational, and welcoming environment. A strategic array of priority needs will be funded through this project, including books, craft supplies, tricycles, classroom furnishings, outdoor playground equipment, and much more.
