Children's Center of New Milford
of Matching Remaining
The Children's Center is a nonprofit preschool nestled on over an acre of land located only a block from the Town Green. For over 45 years, the Children's Center's top quality early childhood education program has been available to all in our community: high-income, middle-income, low-income. All are welcomed here and our student body is a true representation of our community. The Children's Center's sliding fee scale makes it possible for families from all income levels to enroll their children in our nationally accredited school. But the sliding fee scale does not cover our costs so keeping this program going is always a challenge. The Center has full and half day programs for children ranging in age from three months-old to eight years-old. Full day programs are open 49 weeks/year, Mon – Fri, 7:30 – 5:30. Half day programs follow the public-school calendar. Through our deep roots in the community, dedication to developmentally appropriate learning and overall excellence, the Children's Center has provided a rich environment for over four decades in which children grow and flourish.
The State budget crisis is having a ripple effect - the Children's Center School lost significant funding. With your help, we can keep our commitment to our low- and moderate-income families. These families are able to enroll their children in our school because we offer a sliding fee scale. These families are not looking for a handout. To qualify for the sliding fee, the families must provide proof of earned income. They are hardworking, tax-paying families who have the chance to build their lives based on the American dream - equal opportunity for all. We are raising money to bridge the budget gap created by the lost funding and keep all our children enrolled. Your donation will help keep this tradition alive and well.
