KDCCC is a warm, safe and supportive environment for children and their parents.

KDCCC’s mission is to provide income eligible families with children ages 0-5 years, free, part-time, educationally rich child care, parent education and support.
We have a vision to empower families by providing high quality child care and foster a learning community supporting success.

A Safe Place For Children


The Kalamazoo Drop-In Child Care Center (KDCCC), established in 1990, provides free, part-time child care for low-income families with children ages six weeks through five years old. The objective of our service is to enable parents with young children to more rapidly negotiate the maze of appointments and services often required to obtain employment, permanent housing, register for school or attend classes, and attain eventual self-sufficiency. We also give parents a “healthy” break from the demands of parenting. Our center is a warm, safe, and supportive environment for children and their parents.

KDCCC is open Monday through Friday from 11am – 3pm. We are licensed through the State of Michigan and parents need to register their children before dropping them off. Families need to qualify for WIC or Medicaid in order to qualify for our service. Parents may register their children any time during our hours.
Space is limited to 20 children each day, but once children are registered, they may reserve spots up to two weeks in advance. Children may attend up to six times each month.
