The Kalamazoo Drop-In Child Care Center

creates a warm, safe and supportive

environment for children and their families.

A Safe Place for Children


The Kalamazoo Drop-In Child Care Center (KDCCC), established in 1990, provides free, part-time child care for income eligible 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 families.

KDCCC is fully licensed through the State of Michigan.  Parents/Guardians are required to register before utilizing our service.
KDCCC’s free, part-time child care is for parents who are income eligible for Medicaid or meet the
income requirements established by the Federal Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program.
Registration is any time between 11AM – 3PM, Monday through Friday.  At registration, please bring your child’s
up-to-date immunization records and proof of income (such as a WIC, Bridge, Medicaid card, or pay stub).
Space is limited to 20 children each day.  Once children are registered, families may reserve child care
slots up to two weeks in advance.  Children may attend up to six times each month.

We are Unique

KDCCC is the only child care center in Southwest Michigan that provides free, part-time child care.
