Gone but never forgotten

cablogo-Contributed by Carly Gaston

It is with great sadness that the Cabbagetown Co-operative Nursery School Board must announce the closing of the school effective June 2016.  For the last several years the Nursery Schools enrollment has been effected by the implementation of All Day Kindergarten and our program is no longer sustainable.
Operational for over 30 years, and with Tina Ruggiero at the helm for the last 16, it is truly the end of an era.
The CCNS served as many of Cabbagetown children’s first foray into education.  Past and current families have benefited so greatly from Tina’s expertise. The relationships that were formed here have endured throughout lives of both parents and children alike.  As a Cabbagetown mom or dad the answer to any tough parenting question was often found by asking “What would Tina do?”, and in a neighbourhood where there is no one set path for schooling there was solidarity in having been one of ‘Tina’s kids’.
Our community and our children are stronger for having experienced Tina’s guidance and unshakable commitment to the children.
We are happy to know that Tina will continue to enrich the lives of children, albeit elsewhere.
