Did you know that children from lower-income families are more likely to become pregnant or incarcerated at a young age? They risk never catching up with their peers even though their greatest potential was present during their early years. By age 4 they may be 18 months below "normal" development. This doesn't have to be the case. Every child deserves a chance to thrive in the right environment to send them in the direction they were meant to go. Our goal at Child Care of Southwest Florida is to make a difference in the life of each child that passes through our doors. You can help us do this. Help us give a child and their family the best start and a lifetime of learning by donating, volunteering, and sponsoring.
