There are many ways to support Total Child!
Total Child is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian, and non-discriminatory program.
We rely on our annual fundraiser to help provide tuition scholarships for families in need of tuition assistance.
This year, Total Child plans to provide more than $25,000 in financial aid from public and private sources, or about 5 percent of the school’s budget.
Tuition assistance helps families with lower incomes, families in which one or both parents are unemployed, and families who do not qualify for government assistance but still struggle to cover the cost of childcare.
When unexpected economic hardship strikes families who have children in our programs, tuition scholarships help ensure that these families can remain part of this community.Learn more about upcoming events

First United Methodist Church’s support of Total Child evolves out of a theological commitment to diversity and a belief that high quality, affordable, early childhood education is vital to our community. In support of this commitment, First Church provides Total Child with its classrooms, motor room, playground, kitchen facilities, utilities and insurance at no charge. The church also offers the use of its building for Total Child special events. This financial and in-kind support provides a strong foundation for our program’s fiscal operation.
