Central Christian College of Kansas is pleased to announce the grand opening and ribbon cutting for Kids Kampus, 1381 South Main.  The ceremony will be held at 10:30 a.m., Friday, October 10, 2014.    

According to Dr. Dean Kroeker, Special Assistant to the President, Central is responding to the need and demand for a childcare center that will serve the community of McPherson.  With only two centers in town, Central made the decision to purchase one with a plan to double its size.  

The facility is moving to its newly renovated building with over 13,000 square feet, October 6, 2014.  Equipped with security pin code access, monitors in each classroom, and 3 separate playgrounds specifically designed for each different age child, the center is truly state-of-the-art in childcare centers.

Central students will work as teachers’ aides in the center with a licensed capacity of over 200 children.  Included in the center are four rooms for children under 2, four classrooms for toddlers through 4 years of age and three classrooms for pre-kindergarten – 5th grade students.  The center also includes a health station with a full time nurse on staff.

President Hal Hoxie believes that this development will be a great benefit for both our community and the college.  

“Central Christian College’s mission to provide a Christ-centered education for character aligns perfectly with caring for and training little people at Kids Kampus. It also provides another opportunity for our college students to work, learn, and connect with the community.  We are excited God has blessed us to be able to double the openings for Kids Kampus care in the wonderfully renovated, state-of-the-art facility on CCC’s campus. We are also thankful that Wanda Williams, the founder and manager of Kids Kampus who has led childcare in McPherson for 20 years, continued her work with us and that CCC is able to provide quality care for another generation of leaders in McPherson!”
