The quality of early care and education children receive before the age of 5 affects the trajectory of their entire lives. Donations from individual supporters and businesses make a specific, measurable impact, like:

  • Privately-funded scholarships that have moved approximately 1,000 children from babysitters to education-based programs, where they are quickly learning the language, social and organizational skills that will literally shape their entire lives
  • 3,500 working Westchester parents who get referrals to quality child care programs each year
  • Literacy and book lending programs that help children learn to love reading
  • Formal child care provider quality improvement initiatives with a 97% success rate
  • Enhanced training and professional development opportunities for child care professionals
  • Employers whose employees are more present and productive because our resource and referral information solved their child care issues

When you support quality early care and education, your donation lasts a lifetime.
