We are looking forward to the day when our campus is again bustling with curious preschoolers, boisterous campers, joyful swimmers, and eager program participants of all ages. In the meantime, we are busy staying connected to DCH families and the broader community and planning for the future.

  • Throughout the spring, DCH Preschool teachers connected with their students through virtual classroom sessions and took part in professional development.
  • Jenni helped keep Dedham's camp community connected as we all interrpreted regulations and made tough choices for our summer programs.
  • We are opening our pool and exploring summer recreational programming in new ways that respect the guidelines and the safety of our staff and community. 
  • The DCH Board and senior leadership meet often to ensure that our staff is supported, and the longevity of our organization is secure.

We continue to monitor guidance and make plans for the fall, keeping in mind that:

  • Quality, affordable childcare is key to an economic recovery. 
  • Regulations will likely limit preschool and program enrollment. They will also require personal protective equipment and additional cleaning and program supplies. These important safety measures will add significant losses and costs to our budget.
  • An increased demand for financial aid is inevitable. Many in our community are suffering financially from the current circumstances. DCH remains committed to serving families of all economic backgrounds. Building up our financial aid fund to do so is critical.

We are looking at all opportunities to sustain personnel and maintain the upkeep of our buildings and campus and plan for increased financial aid—but we need your help.

Your donation will allow DCH to serve the community in new ways during this trying time, to remain intact and ready to open our doors again, and to provide financial aid so our programs are accessible to all. Please donate today. Every dollar counts.


“DCH makes our town a more vibrant place. With the breadth of its programs, scholarships for those in need, and the beautiful, historic Haven House as its center, DCH is an anchor that helps bring people together. I believe charity begins at home, and I’m proud to support this gem in the heart of Dedham!” ~DCH Donor
