REFENS - Welcome to REFENS

Welcome to REFENS!

Our school has provided a gentle first step into our children's eduction for more than 40 years.  REFENS was started by a group of local parents and remains a parent cooperative to this day.

REFENS - Fundraising Events

Fundraising Events

REFENS is a non-profit organization therefore some of the money required to operate is acquired through fund raising events.  Parents’ involvement in this area is essential to keeping our fees reasonable and allows us to cover the costs related to class outings throughout the year. New ideas and suggestions are always welcome.

REFENS - Donations


Donations are always welcome!   If you have toys, books, software, costumes/dress-up clothes and craft items (e.g. yarn, felt, fabric paint, etc.) that you no longer need, please check with the teacher to see if REFENS could put them to use.
