Who We Are

ALCD is a non-profit community program that serves children from the ages 3 weeks to 12 years of age. We have been in service for 19 years. We assist parents by providing services based on their ability to pay. ALCD provides free childcare services for homeless families, children from battered homes, and for Veterans while seeking employment. Our Center promotes excellence in education and we strive to develop morals and character skills. Our diversity helps our children understand various cultures allowing them to have multicultural experiences at and early age.We continue to bring new ideas into their curriculum to get their minds learning. We instill the concept "Today's Learner Tomorrows Leaders!" We pride ourselves on hosting safe, uplifting, family-friendly events in our community that are open to the public. We continue to find new ways to service those who are in need in in the community. The preschool was founded by Dr. Sylvia Collins, Ph.D. in Early Childhood Education in 1996.
