$3,000 Goal

The Family Child Development Center is a place where children are free to grow and learn at their own pace!

FCDC's history is rich in community presence.  We began our journey in child care and educational programming in 1970 and incorporated as a non-profit in 1991.  FCDC is known for providing child care which feels like a home away from home.  It is our mission to nurture children's early learning through play and to do so,  our dedicated teaching staff strive to build environments where children's individual needs are supported.   Children are encouraged to explore materials hands-on and make learning discoveries led by their own interests.   We are dedicated to cultivating environments which are welcoming and inviting so that children are free to lead their learning and truly experience the magic of play!  

Our Give to the Max 2023 Goals

Our goal this year is to get back some of the things that we lost during covid-19 pandemic. FCDC is slowly rebuilding our center with the help of our wonderful and dedicated staff and families. FCDC is a small center focused on providing quality play-based care to all children in our community and surrounding communities. We believe that no matter what your financial status, all children deserve the right to receive quality care and a good education.  Our ultimate goals for 2023 are;

  • To be able to offer partial or full scholarships to families that would otherwise be unable to afford the cost of childcare.
  • Help off-set the cost of field trips and other extra costs throughout the year to our families.
  • Purchase a new baby buggy to get our infants outside to explore our community.
  • Provide additional funds for our classrooms to buy new, fun supplies for their weekly activities

We recognize it's been hard for your family as well.   If you are able to give this year, please consider a contribution to Family Child Development Center.   Your contribution would provide direct financial relief to our program and allow us to continue to respond to the ever changing needs of families and staff.
