On August 27, Amherst’s Own Child Care (AOCC) celebrated 30 years of serving our area families with exceptional care for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years. Many of the families bring their children to the center that they attended when they were young because they have personally ex­perienced the quality of care.

If you’re around Amherst during the day, you’ve likely seen a parade of young­sters with their caregivers walking down­town. This walk-about is part of the three hours of fresh-air play incorporated into the full-day of child-focused instruction, which also includes at least 90 minutes of self-directed play. Children are given ample opportunity to creatively express themselves in their play, art, music, and problem solving every day.

With so many families raising chil­dren while both parents work, AOCC, a non-profit corporation, fills an important need in our community by focusing on the whole child with child-centered instruction and developmentally appropriate practices. To learn more about AOCC, contact them at (715) 824-5090 or visit their Face­book page, Amherst’s Own Child Care.
