Pathway to Early Learning: Brick paver fundraiser to benefit nonprofit learning center in Fort Myers

Child Care of Southwest Florida has announced a brick paver fundraiser for the Children’s Learning Center in Fort Myers, an initiative that gives community members an opportunity to help support high-quality early education programs for local families.

Engraving a paver can be a great way to honor a loved one, share a memory or promote a business, all while raising critical funds for an important cause. Residents and business owners are invited to purchase a custom red paver to be installed in a pathway leading up to the front entrance of the Children’s Learning Center, located at 37 Barkley Circle.

Pavers are available in three different sizes at donation levels of $75, $150 and $500. In addition, donors can upload their own personal logo or choose from a selection of clip art to etch on the brick for an extra fee of $10. To order a custom paver, visit PolarEngraving.com/CCSWFL.

“By purchasing a paver, our supporters can leave a lasting legacy while directly contributing to the growth and success of our center and children,” said Chris Hansen, CEO of Child Care of Southwest Florida. “We are truly grateful for the support and commitment of our community, and we look forward to seeing this custom pathway flourish as a collective investment in the future of early childhood education in Southwest Florida.”

Child Care of Southwest Florida provides early learning education to more than 350 children, ages 6 weeks through 8 years old, at five learning centers across Lee and Hendry counties. The Children’s Learning Center is accredited through the National Accreditation Commission for Early Learning Leaders and is a Gold Seal Quality Care Program through the Florida Department of Children and Families. Additionally, centers maintain five-star ratings through the Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida.
