Case Western Reserve University Partners to Enhance Child Care Options


Case Western Reserve University is partnering with The Music Settlement (TMS) to enhance its childcare options for the children of students, staff, and faculty, the school announced on Monday.

Housed on two campuses, one adjacent to Case Western Reserve and the other in Ohio City, TMS is a provider of early childhood education, music instruction, and music therapy.

As a part of the agreement, TMS will reserve 35 slots for the children of university students, staff and faculty for kindergarten, day school, and early childhood preschool programs. The university will also cover each family’s $75 registration fee.

“As a proud graduate of Case Western Reserve University’s School of Law and the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, I know first-hand the university’s commitment to excellence in research, teaching and innovation, as well as the arts,” Geralyn ‘Geri’ Presti, TMS president and CEO, said.

“The Music Settlement shares the same values and is thrilled that our two institutions can join together to provide award-winning early childhood educational programs to the faculty, staff and students of Case Western Reserve.”

Faculty Parents leader Maggie Popkin also applauded the university for creating the new initiative with TMS due to its prestigious reputation and extraordinary preschool program.

“The partnership is filling a need right now and also potentially setting up a foundation for future developments—both of those are exciting,” Popkin said.
