Children's Center of New Milford
of Matching Remaining
The Children's Center is a nonprofit preschool nestled on about an acre of land 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 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 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. Additionally, the State budget crisis is reducing the funding available to support our nonprofit organization. Give Local helps us keep our commitment to community, especially to our low- and moderate-income families. These families can afford our program 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 our budget gap so we can keep all our children enrolled. Your donation makes a difference in the lives of our 100 children!
