Donations to Lemay Child & Family Center help to bridge the gap between the cost of high-quality early childhood education and the amount that families are able to pay. In fact, parents pay only an average of 32% of the actual cost of their childcare. The other 68% comes from a blend of private donations, grants, and government funding. In 2010, we provided more than $500,000 in scholarship assistance to families.
Here are some specific examples of the difference your gift can make:
$25 purchases new books for the parent resource library
$35 provides breakfast for a classroom of preschoolers for one week
$50 will pay for art supplies for one month
$50 provides a tank of gas for the van used for picking up school-agers for our after-school program
$75 can purchase new musical instruments for a toddler class
$100 funds a one-week scholarship for a two-year-old
$100 provides childcare for families participating in parenting classes
$500 funds three field trips for 32 school-age children in the summer
$1,000 provides lunch for 60 children for one month
