General

  • Mission:
  • Alpena Childcare and Development Center's programs are based upon the principles of developmentally appropriate practice. Our goal is to give each child a warm environment that encourages the development of socialization skills, independence, and a positive self-image.
    Our teaching staff embraces the view that each child is a unique person with individual characteristics of social, physical and intellectual development. Teachers work with the children by providing age appropriate activities to encourage them to think for themselves, to make decisions, to work towards their own solutions and express their own ideas and feelings.

  • Overview:
  • Alpena Childcare and Development Center is a non-profit childcare center serving families with children age birth to twelve years old. Specialized programs for each age group provide activities to develop new skills and work towards age appropriate milestones.
    Alpena Childcare and Development Center is the only childcare center serving Alpena and the surrounding counties within 100 miles. The need for quality childcare services is in severe demand.

  • History:
  • Alpena Childcare and Development Center started life as Alpena Girls Club in 1975. The Club accepted only female children to teach occupational skills such as sewing, cooking, and crafts. In the 1980's they began to restructure their programs to include both sexes and changed their name to Alpena Youth Center. A new facility was built in 2000 to accommodate the growing population however due to mismanagement and poorly structured educational programs, program attendance decreased drastically. In 2005 in an effort to save the Center the board stepped down whereupon a new board and executive director were appointed and a center wide restructure implemented which included a name change in the form of the DBA Alpena Childcare and Development Center.
    Today, Alpena Childcare and Development Center has an enrollment of over 250 children with a year long waiting list and strong community partnerships.
