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.
Excellent service. The team does an amazing job. I have put my son here more for than a year. We still love this place.
I am able to make my extremely important appointments on time and run errands.
KDCCC helps me out in so many ways when I need to go to doctor appointments and study for my college classes.
KDCCC has helped so much with going back to school. It has allowed me to have uninterrupted time to study as well as take tests.
I work part-time, but can’t afford full-time care. Between using family members and KDCCC, I am able to work to help support my family.
Working from home is now a lot easier and quieter when I need to speak with clients. KDCCC has helped me stay productive in my work.
