Dear Cushman Community,
It is with such joy that I inform you that after great anticipation, we have received approval from the City of Miami to open the doors of PLAY TO LEARN to your children and our community! Thanks to all—from those of you who have been part of Cushman and on this Play to Learn journey with us for many years to those who have recently joined our community— for the countless ways you have demonstrated unwavering support and patience as we successfully overcame so many obstacles and fulfilled a wide range of City requirements. Through your commitment and donations, you have made it possible for our children and community to have Play to Learn as a point of great pride!
A special thank you is extended to our current Board Chair, Sara Colombo, for her steadfast expertise, oversight and perseverance, our past Board Chair, Victor Napoli, for his leadership in launching our Play to Learn campaign, to all of our current and past Board members, our faculty, staff and administration, BDI Construction, and our Owner’s Rep, Cody Miller, for their unwavering insight.
Play to Learn is a state-of-the-art facility that is mission-driven and was designed as a beautiful, community space where your children can further develop and showcase their love for the arts and athletics. Our highly qualified, passionate educators will undoubtedly continue to develop in your children the confidence, poise, skills, dispositions and passion that contribute to each Cushman student becoming a ‘star’ on the stage, on the court and in life.
We will be holding an official ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate this opening of which you will receive an invitation. There is no doubt that your children will be as excited as we are!
Thank you, again, for your love and dedication to our beloved Cushman School!
Dr. Arvi Balseiro
Head of School
