Roberta Webb Child Care Center, a non-profit, United Way agency, provides quality, affordable, licensed child care in a safe and nurturing environment and provides children ages 0-5 with a good start since November 1994. The center is located in the Immanuel Mennonite Church building on Kelley Street and named in honor of Roberta Morgan Webb, an African American early childhood educator who lived in the community.
The program is geared towards parents who balance work or school with parenting, often with little support. Parents can be confident knowing their children are in a quality, nurturing setting, designed to meet the needs of the whole child. Parent fees are based on a sliding fee scale according to family income. As family situations change, fees are adjusted. The difference between operating costs and parent fees is covered by public grants and private donations.
