Help us reach our goal of $50,000 Give for Today, Plan For Tomorrow Campaign! Click to donate.
The Yellow Springs Community Children’s Center (YSCCC), families, staff, and board have joined to make an appeal to you during this challenging Covid-19 pandemic. The YSCCC has been operating, but is in need of additional financial support to weather this critical period of time. Now you can help with Give for Today, Plan for Tomorrow Capital Campaign. Join us!
Staffing challenges, adequate building safety upgrades and maintenance, reduced classroom capacity, reduced revenue and funding, has proved an additional strain on the YSCCC. Trying to balance these challenges with safe daily operations, sufficient staffing, all the while educating these young children requires additional financial support.
Recent Capital Improvements:
- HVAC system in the Vernay Building
- Upgraded Electrical
- I Wave Air Purifiers* to all furnaces.
*I Wave helps purify the air throughout the whole building. In addition to preventing mold and bacteria in the HVAC system, it also kills bacteria and viruses in classrooms and hallways, reduces odors, allergen and dust particles, and reduces airborne pathogens that cause cross contamination. The founding company of I Wave (Nu-Calgon) tested the I Wave device against the COVID 19 virus. COVID 19 spent 30 minutes in the air purifier chamber and the rate of reduction was 99.4%.
The Yellow Springs Community Children’s Center has a long history of caring for and educating children in Yellow Springs. Since 1946 YSCCC has continued the tradition of serving families of our diverse community and neighboring counties. Education at the YSCCC is aimed at supporting the integrated growth of the whole child. Parent/guardian involvement in Center activities is not only encouraged but essential to quality care. Involvement benefits and enriches the experiences of the children. For school-agers, the Center provides a bridge between the child’s school experience and home. The Center is dependent upon this energy and enthusiasm to accomplish many of its goals and objectives.
