Half the 100 students at our preschool/daycare are on a sliding fee scale. We lose between $1,500 and $6,000 on each one of them. It is a tough business model but it is really important to us that all families in our community have access to our nationally accredited school, not just the people who can afford to pay $13,000 a year for our all-day/year-round program.
We could use help with new event or auction ideas to increase attendance and giving at our annual fundraiser.
The cost of childcare is out of reach for low- and moderate-income families.
Our sliding fee scale makes the difference between a parent keeping their job or being forced onto welfare because they cannot afford the cost of childcare.
We need to raise at least $100,000 a year to keep our doors open and have our top quality program available to 47 sliding fee scale families in our community each year.
The Children's Center is dedicated to providing top quality early childhood education and childcare for the families in our community. We offer a sliding fee scale so that our nationally accredited preschool is available to all.
The Children's Center is committed to ensuring that parents have a safe and nurturing environment into which they can entrust the care and education of their children.
The Children's Center recognizes the importance of fostering a partnership with parents to help children develop into confident, caring, productive human beings.
