Your gift makes a difference—to each of our children, parents, teachers, and early childhood professionals and students. However you choose to support the CEC, know that your financial participation is invaluable and the reason why we have continued to be the special place we are for families for more than thirty-five years.

The Giving Guide was created to explain the opportunities for supporting the CEC and why support from our entire community is vital and meaningful to the success of our mission.

Since tuition alone does not cover the full cost of providing high quality care and education for children at the CEC, we rely on several activities to raise the additional funds we need to provide for families in our care.
