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.
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.
