Nurturing Children - Supporting Parents

More than 350 youngsters and 600 parents and guardians were supported this year.  With our recent expansion, we are now serving 400 children and 1,000 parents. Our program not only meets parents' needs for affordable child care, but the children's needs are fully met as they receive nurturing in all developmental domains in a secure, child-centered environment.
