Kids Co. is a nonprofit child care organization. And why a nonprofit? Our founder, Susan R. Brown worked for a profit child care in the 1980s. She saw first-hand the effects on families who couldn’t enroll their children simply because they couldn’t afford the tuition.

Other things she noticed:

  1. Most families are either working, in school, or disabled;
  2. Many are single parents trying to make ends meet on one-income;
  3. The inability to obtain care hinders their ability to work and/or attend school;
  4. The cost of child care tuition rivals that of college tuition;
  5. Affordable care options are hard to find!

As a nonprofit, Kids Co. is here to serve the kids rather than the profit. This distinguishes Kids Co. from the many for-profit child care businesses in our community and allows us to use our funds in proactive ways that support our families and staff. Here’s what we do with your donations:

  • Provide tuition assistance for low-income families who are experiencing trauma;
  • Give our staff dynamic, comprehensive, and relevant training so they can care for children’s unique needs and keep them safe;
  • Incorporate experiential learning programming (think field trips, guest teachers, and specialty classes) that that gives them real-life and hands-on experiences;
  • Serve delicious and healthy snacks to all of our students so they won’t be hungry during their out of school time. If you have a chance please watch this Frontline documentary that focuses on food insecurity in America.

We invite you to get to know Kids Co. on a personal level. Ask for a site tour, enroll your kid, volunteer, or make a donation. Explore our website, tell us what you like, and we’re here to listen, learn, and share.

Thank you!
