Mission Statement

Wausau Child Care is a NAEYC accredited, not-for-profit, fully-licensed and community-based organization specializing in quality care for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years. Our service depends on an educated, well-trained and experienced staff of childcare professionals. Our programs reflect our genuine desire and commitment to providing care which significantly exceeds minimum requirements, while responding to the needs of parents, employers and of the organizations in the greater Wausau area.
Wausau Child Care is dedicated to providing children with a warm, loving, consistent environment designed to foster physical, social, intellectual and emotional development while recognizing that each child is unique. Our agency strives to offer high-quality childcare services which are supportive and sensitive to parent/family needs and diversity:

  • to implement practices based on a thorough knowledge of child development.
  • to assist staff in their professional development.
  • to foster relationships based on trust, respect and genuine concern.
Only where children gather is there a chance of real fun
