Welcome Letter

Dear Parents,

The Atchison Child Care Center staff extends a cordial welcome to you.  We are pleased that you have chosen us to care for your children.  We need and want your involvement.  Your interest and cooperations will play an important park in making our program run smoothly.  Your suggestions are welcomed.

We have converted Franklin Elementary School, 1326 Kansas Ave, into a childcare facility and a preschool.  Our new facility houses all our programs; infants (2 weeks) through 5th grade.

Enclosed is a booklet you will need to read and keep in a convenient place for quick referral.  It contains rules and regulations governing the Atchison Child Care Center, board members and staff along with important things you will want to know.

Atchison Child Care is a United Way Agency.  Atchison County, Evah Cray Trust, Courtney Turner Trust, Adair Foundation, and other clubs and organizations help with funding that makes Atchison Child Care Association possible in our community.

Our Location

We provide a variety of daily activities suitable for your child’s age, all of which are designed to encourage mental, physical and emotional growth for the children.

The Center participated in the Child and Adult Care Food Program, administered by the State Department of Education School Lunch Section.  By participating in this program, we make meals available to all children who are in attendance at mealtime, regardless of race, color, national origin, or ability to pay.

We enjoy having your children during the summer months too.  Our summer program is primarily recreational, with summing 5 days a week, School Age (1st-5th) M-W-F and Kindergarten T-Th (if weather permits), field trips, walks, parks, picnics, arts and crafts and we also go to the library and nursing homes very week.

We welcome you to ACCA.  If you have any questions, please give us a call at 913-367-6441 (8-6).  We look forward to working with you and your children.

Carrie Sowers, Program Director
