Lack of childcare in the area has been a top concern echoed by many throughout Boone County. Boone Beginnings Early Childhood and Family Development Center will provide childcare and high-quality programming for 80 children from ages six weeks through preschool. Currently, in Boone County, there are 80 children in this age range for whom there is no space in local daycares. Centrally located in Albion, Boone Beginnings will offer childcare, parent education, and a support network for all licensed childcare providers in Boone County.
Because of the strong need, this center will provide all-day/all-year care without competing with current providers or preschool programs. Not only will Boone Beginnings benefit our children by nurturing their cognitive, behavioral, and social development, but it will also benefit our community’s quality of life and our local economy.
