Take Sweet Care of Parkside

A campaign celebrating 30 years of Parkside.

In 2019, we launched a very special, multi-year fundraising campaign: Take Sweet Care of Parkside. If you’ve ever received a personal communication from Claire, you’ll recognize her signature closing “Take Sweet Care,” and that’s exactly what we want to do for Parkside. Our three biggest priorities are the Children, the Teachers, and the Campus, and with your help, we can provide more student scholarships, enriching staff development opportunities, and campus improvements and programming that will benefit the entire community. 

Our goal is to raise $300,000 – just in time for Parkside’s 30th Anniversary in 2021! It’s a lofty number, but if the large and loving community that Joe and Claire have built since 1991 comes together to Take Sweet Care of Parkside, what a celebration we’ll have when we reach that goal!


“Parkside has a wonderful reputation in the Montessori community of Austin, and thus intrigued us. But what kept us at Parkside is the love and support we felt from the teachers, admin, directors, and community. Our Primary teachers were more than just "guides" -- they obviously cared for my children in my absence. ”
