Our Story

We seek to create a non-profit early child development center that will provide affordable, high-quality child care for those living and working in Wichita’s urban core.

This concept is not new. Previously known as the Downtown Day Care Center, we have an established and successful 43-year history in serving downtown Wichita’s diverse child care needs. Out of the untimely closure of our most recent facility, a new vision has emerged. The opportunity to create a more contemporary outreach to serve the needs of the redeveloping urban core became apparent. It is the vision of Center City Academy to reorganize and embrace the transformation and tremendous growth taking place in downtown Wichita.

Our center (located within a five-mile radius of the center of Wichita) will provide state-of-the-art teaching with a holistic approach, educating the mind, body, and spirit. Our staff will be diverse, well-trained, and well-paid, with health and retirement benefit plans available to them. Our high-tech facility will have a computer system, specially designed for day care centers, and video streaming for security.
