Uni-Pres Kindercottage was established May 10, 1965, as a not-for-profit agency to provide services to children ages 3-5 years. By 1970, families needed our services for a younger group of children. We met those needs by lowering the age to 2 years. Today, we provide services to all children including those with special needs. We are licensed to serve eighty-six children, ages six weeks through twelve years. Uni-Pres Kindercottage is and always has been family driven. We provide additional services to meet the needs of families because of The Welfare Reform Act, which requires families to become self sufficient to leave the welfare rolls. Our agency expanded services to include counseling, health and developmental screenings, food, clothing give-a-ways, job referrals and job training opportunities. Uni-Pres Kindercottage mission statement states, "We provide an environment where all children have opportunities for learning through educational, social and developmental programs."
The Uni-Pres Kindercottage is a holistic model which includes the child's health, social and psychological well being, as well as, their family dynamics. Uni-Pres Kindercottage does not discriminate and is an equal opportunity employer.
