Enhancement Grants

Child Care Center Enhancement Grants is TLLCCF’s oldest continuous program. For 30 years the Foundation has awarded nearly $2 Million dollars to child care centers, allowing them to implement specific changes needed to improve the quality of care provided to children. 


The grants help to improve the quality of child care that is administered by exceptional teachers who are working within the limits of budget constraints. The program has served many needy, yet outstanding child care centers in the five counties of southeastern Pennsylvania Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia. Child Care Center Enhancement Grants have helped add new equipment to improve health and safety in the classroom and make positive changes to the curriculum. In 2017 alone, 1613 children benefited from Enhancement Grants. The common attribute among the centers to which the Foundation provides its grants is their ability to maintain a high level of quality care and early learning despite the cuts in state and federal funding. The Foundation offers program sponsorships at various levels.  Show your support and join our list of partners and sponsors today!
