Arvest Foundation donates $10,000 to Early Learning Center
Members of Arvest Foundation and Community Support Services of Missouri.

We are excited to announce that the Community Support Services (CSS) Early Learning Center (ELC) has received a $10,000 donation from the Arvest Foundation. The check from the Arvest Foundation was presented to members of the CSS Executive Team and ELC on Friday, October 27. The check presentation even featured a few of the children attending the ELC who presented some of their artwork as a token of appreciation to members of the Arvest team. This generous donation will allow us to continue providing specialized education and care to children with developmental delays and medical diagnoses. This donation will help us provide additional resources and support to our students and their families and allow us to continue offering a safe and nurturing environment for all children in our care.

We want to express our sincere thanks to the Arvest Foundation for their generous support of our early childhood center. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of children with special needs in our community!

About the CSS Early Learning Center:

The CSS Early Learning Center (ELC) is an early childhood center licensed by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). This state-licensed facility provides quality care for children from birth through 12 years of age. Services are provided to children with developmental delays, children with special needs, and typically developing children living in Jasper, Newton, and McDonald counties.

ELC staff are trained to meet the individual child's needs, including tube feedings, behavioral issues, seizure protocols, medication administration, and more. The ELC accepts reimbursement from the Missouri DESE Child Care Assistance Program, State of Kansas Child Care assistance, and tribal subsidy. Other childcare assistance programs would be considered if a family need arises.

Formerly known as the Tri-County Cerebral Palsy Center, the ELC became a division of Community Support Services of Missouri in 2019.
