ACCA Parent Newsletter


Dear Parents,

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

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

You were given a booklet when you enrolled your child that you will need to read and keep in a convenient place for quick referral. It contains rules and regulations governing the Center, board members and staff along with important things you will want to know.

The Center receives United Way, County Funds; and The McConaughy Fund and Trinity Episcopal Church awards some scholarship funds.

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 participates 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 swimming 5 days a week, School Age (1st-5th) M-W-F and Preschool/Kindergarten T-Th (if weather permits), field trips, walks, trips to parks, picnics, arts & crafts and we also go to the library every week.

We welcome you to ACCA. If you have questions, please give us a call at 367-6441 (8-5), 367-4406 or 367-1697 after hours.

We look forward to working with you and your children.


Carrie Sowers
