We are a non-profit childcare center and run solely on the generous contributions and donations made by individuals and community partners.
We do accept donated items as well. For specific wish list items, please contact the Director. For general items such as toys, baby clothes, diapers, etc., we ask that all items be clean, sealed (if applicable), and not broken. A general rule: if you wouldn’t want your own child wearing it, playing with it, or using it, then it is not safe for our children either.
