How Your Donation Helps Southwest Florida Families in Need

Donations are used to provide scholarships for families who otherwise couldn’t afford quality child care at our five highly accredited early learning centers. Additionally, our Family Resource Specialists engage the whole family, addressing needs such as parenting, budgeting, jobs, and adult education. By providing parents with a hand up, rather than a handout, you can help us change our community for the better, one family at a time!

How Scholarships Empower the Whole Family

Child Care of Southwest Florida proudly offers Primary Need Scholarships to students in our five early learning centers. These scholarships pick up where government assistance ends. Why is this important? It encourages economic progress. Often, working parents lose assistance as they make financial gains. However, at Child Care of Southwest Florida, parents pay what they can for the very best early childhood education, and scholarships fill the gap.

Education is the gift of a lifetime, and the return on your investment is enormous. Think of your contribution as an investment in the future of a child in need.
