Why Donate?

Like many schools, CCSC operates on a very modest budget. Tuition dollars, which we know are a substantial investment, cover only the center’s basic operating expenses. CCSC has needs crucial to its ongoing success that we are unable to fulfill within our modest budget. These needs include:

  • Teacher professional development; such as tuition assistance for early childhood education classes, fees for conferences, registration for educational opportunities and training. Professional development opportunities inspire our teachers, facilitate teacher dedication, and promotes the teacher retention that CCSC prides itself on.

  • Special classroom materials, equipment and activities for projects and unique learning opportunities

  • Capital improvements and maintenance of the center’s facilities and outside play spaces

Please make a tax-deductible contribution today to support teacher professional development and enhance CCSC’s offerings. Your donation is an important investment in our school, and we greatly appreciate your support.

Examples of what your tax-deductible contribution supports:

  • $40 = one RAFT Membership (Resource Area for Teachers) for workshops and materials

  • $70 = one NAEYC teacher membership

  • $125 = one set of magnablocks for a classroom

  • $250 = a new tricycle for the older children or a stroller for our infants

  • $400 = a visit to CCSC from the petting zoo or a speaker at the teacher in-service event

  • $800 = the tuition for one teacher to attend the Bing Institute; promoting reflective teaching practices

  • $1,000 = the conference fee and travel expenses for one teacher to attend an out-of-area conference
