West Grove Early Care & Development Center is a non-profit corporation, fully licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to provide child care services to children from 8 weeks to 12 years of age.

childcare and pre-school to families in the Southern Chester County area.  At West Grove Early Care

& Development Center we recognize that each child is an individual; that all children are creative; and

that all children feel the need to succeed. We respect the individual needs of children; foster a caring and creative environment; and emphasize the social,emotional, physical, and intellectual development of each child.

Dining for Women: "Changing the world one woman, one girl, one dinner at a time."

Dining for Women is a global giving circle that funds grassroots programs working in developing countries to fight gender inequality. Dining for Women celebrates the power of the individual to see an injustice and act to change it; to see need and act to fill it. Dining for Women’s members are deeply involved in the programs we support and the problems we seek to address. Our education component is equally as important as our fundraising.

Our collective-giving model is proving that small contributions, aggregated together, can make a huge difference.

Dining For Women-West Grove Chapter meets at West Grove Meeting on the third Sunday of each month for lunch or dinner.  Please click here to visit our chapter's Facebook page.
