Your donation can help to make a difference in the lives of young children and their families.

At the Family Development Center, a substantial portion of our parent body is comprised of university students. Juggling the demands of school, work, and parenting can be a challenge. Many low-income students are unable to afford quality child care. Although needy students may readily qualify for financial assistance to attend college, grants to assist with child care are more limited, creating a hardship for many parents who are seeking a degree. The Family Development Center has a two-tier fee schedule, offering a discount to all student and UCCS affiliate families. Additionally, a financial subsidy for child care is available to qualifying low-income students. You need not be a full-time student to qualify for assistance.

Your contribution to the Family Development Center Programs Fund helps to keep our child care fees reasonable for all student families, while ensuring early childhood quality standards are maintained. Your donation to the FDC Child Care Scholarship Fund provides direct child care assistance to qualifying low-income student families. Making quality child care accessible to students offers a double benefit, helping parents to complete their college degrees, while providing enriching early learning experiences for children.
