You Can Help by giving to support the working families that provide the quality of life we enjoy in Highlands, NC:



   We are pleased to provide this online opportunity for you to support the working families of Highlands and their children with your tax-deductible contributions.

   HCCDC, The Child Development Center, is a nonprofit corporation and a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that provides age appropriate early childhood education and development services for children in our community ages 3 months to 5 years old while their parents work.
   Tuition is kept as low as possible through the generosity of supporters like you. Forty percent (40%) of The Child Development Center's annual operating expenses are funded by donations from the extended Highlands community.
   Please take this opportunity to donate online by selecting one or more of the private and secure DONATE buttons below or on one of the other webpages that supports our teachers, the endowment, or the benefit concert on July 20th.
                                                            THANK YOU!
GENERAL SCHOLARSHIPS: In western North Carolina the cost of licensed child care is a significant portion of total household income for young working families. One-third of the children enrolled at HCCDC live in single-parent families. Two-thirds of the children qualify for state financial support based on family income. The cost of providing quality and affordable childcare and early childhood eductaion is close to $1,000 per month. You can help a family, or familes, by donating to HCCDC's general scholarship fund to fill the gap between tuition ($635 per month per child) and the cost of providing these services.
