Fundraising is an important part of Playmates Cooperative and we participate in a number of fundraising activities each year.

Fundraising activities during the school year include:

  • Sunset Community Festival
  • Ocean Beach Art and Music Festival
  • Fall Fundraiser
  • Tea School Days Fundraiser
  • Harvest Festival
  • Pancake Breakfast & Holiday Faire
  • Spring Auction

Playmates’ affordable tuition covers only the school’s operating expenses. Funds for additional purchases, such as new play structures, special equipment and scholarships for low-income families, all come from our fundraising dollars.
