The Michigan AfterSchool Association (MAA) is pleased to announce the opening of a new Expanded Learning Center in downtown Kalamazoo. The Expanded Learning Center is a facility dedicated to quality childcare and afterschool programming for area families. Over the past few years, MAA has been working on taking a more active role in supporting families that need childcare and at the same time supporting other centers by modeling best practices. MAA also offers online training, regional workshops across the state, as well as our annual statewide conference aimed at improving the quality of care provided for children and youth when they are not in school. By investing in the adults in children’s lives, we can ensure every child gets a strong start in life.
MAA is pleased to be part of the Kalamazoo community where there is such an effort to make childcare affordable and build a strong community of families and providers. The Expanded Learning Center is directly across the street from Bronson Park and behind Downtown Wood TV 8. Hours of operation will be Monday through Friday 7:00am -6:00pm.
