Children's Discovery Academy is a board of directors that applied for nonprofit status with the IRS on 3-26-2018. We should have official determination by 7-25-2018. We are seeking board members to help start a nonprofit childcare center in Gratiot County.
Currently, Gratiot County does not have any centers for childcare, and when school is not in session, over 4,000 children in Gratiot County aged 0-13 (over 80%) do not have access to licensed childcare.
This is a community need, and we need more volunteers to make this goal a reality.
Our board currently meets once a week for 3 hours at the Alma Library. Board members take on some responsibilities outside of meetings such as publication development, fundraising, community outreach, research, public events, and others as needed. All outside responsibilities are volunteer based, not assigned.
Our mission is to provide high quality, affordable childcare, while fostering a positive community relationship.
We believe all parents deserve to be empowered to- gain or maintain employment or continue their education- knowing that their children are in a safe, nurturing and enriching environment with qualified caregivers.
