Donating to Brooker Memorial

In 2018, The Maria Seymour Brooker Memorial celebrated its 100th anniversary of “preparing children for lifelong success through education, health services, family support and programs of excellence.” We are proud of the thousands of lives Brooker has touched and the positive impact we’ve made on the community during the past century. To continue our child care mission over the next hundred years, we ask for you to consider supporting Brooker Memorial. We plan to continue with the same fiscally responsible management and program delivery that has ensured our success all these years.

Amazing staff, wonderful with my children. Even in this unsettling time, the office was warm and welcoming. The steps to ensure safety were phenomenal. Thank you all.
Very kind and patient with my two year old who wasn't exactly happy to be there.

I love Brooker Memorial. I have been going there since I was little and the people are so very kind, social, and very professional at the same time.  I just love it there! It's quiet but very comfortable setting walking in there waiting for your appointment! They do amazing with kids and older teens! I would totally recommend bringing your children there if you live in the area!
