The mission of the Child Development Council is to promote the healthy development of children and families at home, in child care, and in the community.
Your gift will make it possible for us to serve more families with young children by:
Providing short term assistance for immediate results (child care scholarships, professional development scholarships, supplemental formula and baby food, car seats and safety gates, for example);
Promoting the earliest and most effective means of parent and caregiver/child interactions, building on the potential of each child;
Supporting sound habits of preventative health care and nutrition;
Creating and sustaining safe and enriching learning environments in the home and in child care.
The benefits of your contribution are far reaching, as the gains made early in life extend well beyond into adulthood.
