Playground Fundraiser

Our beloved playground was first established in 1992. New play structures were added in 1997 and 2011, with minimal improvements in the meantime. Since the initial installation, many children and families have touched the wooden boards and slides creating formative memories and experiences.


Now is the time to create a new space on the playground for even more children to enjoy! We would greatly appreciate it if you would consider donating to Westminster School for Young Children to enhance our playground and create opportunities for future Westminster children. None of this will be possible without the generous support of the WSYC community! Please forward the link on to your family, friends, relatives, neighbors, etc. In addition to phase one of this playground renovation, WSYC will also be hosting an Eagle Scout project this summer to improve the playground area, which includes a new mud kitchen, slope slide, tree cookie patio, and picnic tables.

Please help us reach our goal by making a donation or mailing a check to WSYC, 3639 Old Chapel Hill Road, Durham, NC 27707.

Next time you are in the building, see the pictures outside the office door to check the progress. All of us at WSYC want to thank you in advanced for your contribution! Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions!

One More Day is an opportunity for the students to be with their friends to play mainly outside (weather permitting) while being supervised by a rotating team of WSYC Advisory Board members from 9am-12pm for $50. The money raised goes towards our scholarship fund with tuition assistance for students to attend WSYC in future years. Our Carol Van Hise Scholarship Fund was established in 1994 with the recognition of her 25th anniversary as Director of Westminster School for Young Children. We thank her for over 50 years of love, nurture, and guidance to the students, and many thanks to the families who have made donations to our Scholarship Fund over the years through participation in our Spirit Events.


If you are interested in registering your child, please fill out the One More Day Registration Form and pay the non-refundable $50 online (with a convenience fee already added), or by cash or check made out to WSYC. Age groups may be determined based upon the number of children in attendance. Please bring a labeled water bottle and extra change of clothes (plus diapers and wipes if needed). Both drop-off and pick up will be held outside on the playground (or inside in case of inclement weather). Snack will be provided by WSYC.

Spring Pictures

You should have received an email with a link to your child’s photo gallery. All orders must be placed by Sunday, May 5th in order to receive the prints before the end of the school year.

Celebrate “Cinco de Mayo” with a Westminster Spirit Day! Back by popular demand, Westminster has partnered with Nuvo Taco to offer “quick pack” family meals. The quick packs can be picked up at the Fellowship Hall picnic tables after your child’s pickup time on Wednesday, May 15th. Please wear your WSYC shirts that day and use this link to place your order. Proceeds will benefit the Carol Van Hise Scholarship Fund. The deadline to order is 5pm on Tuesday, May 14th. 

Are you looking for a Date Night and a way to help support the Playground Fund simultaneously? We have a perfect opportunity for you. Drop off your children on Friday, May 17th in their pajamas for time on the playground, pizza (included) and a movie from 5:00pm-8:00pm for $50 per child. Siblings are welcome and all children must be fully potty trained. Fill out the form and pay with cash, check, online, or Venmo @wsycdurham in advanced. We hope to see you there!
