Oscar's Early Education Fund
Organized by: Kristin Gustafson
I'm a full time working single mother. I'm trying my best to provide a good life for my son. I recently took a new job that could lead to a good career in Archives and Records Management and the small bump in pay I got along with it is causing me to lose my eligibility for the income based daycare subsidy that allows me to send my son to a high quality child care center. He's been going to the New Dream Child Care Center since he was ten weeks old and I can see the positive effects this wonderful program has had on his mental and social development. He turns two next month and he can already count to ten! I really don't want to have to move him to an at-home provider where he will be put in front of the tv all day and not continue to be given the early childhood education he needs to get a good start in life. Tuition for his daycare is $1,115 a month. I'v set my fundraising goal to raise two months worth of tuition at his current daycare. That will give me time to find an at home provider that I can afford on my own that will be just as good a place for him to learn and grow.
