Established in 1972, TCDN is a non-profit, non-sectarian, childcare and education organization that provides safe, nurturing and enriching programs for children 12 months old through fifth grade. At five locations within the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District, TCDN operates seven programs licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, and accredited by state and national systems of quality improvement.
Our goal is to make our programs available to all, and one way we do so is through our Financial Assistance Program. This program provides reduced tuition costs to families and is funded through individual donations to TCDN, as well as events such as our inaugural TCDN Run for Summer.
On average, TCDN provides more than $9,500 in financial assistance each year. One family recently told us that the financial assistance they received, “Took one of the many worries away from me this year. With all the uncertainty that COVID-19 has brought, I was so relieved to have my child back in a place that was familiar. As a single parent, I did not know how I would navigate the expense of childcare this year. Thank you TCDN!”
Each year, we strive to make more tuition assistance available to our community. We hope you will consider supporting TCDN’s Financial Assistance Program, your generosity and support help make our programs accessible to all.
