On March 22, 2016, the Oconto Area Non-Profit Child Care was awarded an $11,424 grant from the Bond Foundation.
Established in 1993, the child care center serves children (ages six weeks to 12 years) from communities all over Oconto, Marinette and Brown counties. They currently provide care at two locations and are licensed to have 69 children. With nine staff members, they have over 92 years of teaching and childcare experience. The center is open year round and is the only state licensed group child care within the City of Oconto.
Their program has three main areas of focus: the child, the family and our community. The primary focus is on the child as a whole using developmentally appropriate experiences. All children are encouraged to develop to their fullest potential through self-awareness, confidence and self-worth.
