Make a Financial Gift
Your financial support is crucial in ensuring tuition rates remain affordable for all working families. While all families pay tuition, the fees and subsidies received only account for just under 50% of our income. Our mission is to provide affordable and accessible high-quality childcare while empowering families to reach their fullest potential.
Between the tornadoes that hit Nashville, and the outbreak of COVID-19, these past few months have turned into quite the challenge for everyone. On March 18th, we closed the center to ensure the health and safety of our staff, children, and families and successfully re-opened on Monday, June 1st, following the move to Phase Two in Davidson County. During that time, we continued to pay staff and ensured tuition for families was waived. Unfortunately, we had to make the necessary decision to cancel our largest fundraiser, Yum!East, which would have occurred in May. As more businesses reopen, putting parents back to work, and schools plan to remain closed, the overwhelming need for reliable and affordable childcare has grown exponentially. Your gift allows us to continue to provide high-quality childcare, so caregivers can continue to provide for their families. Thank you for your support during this challenging time for our organization and our community.
