ChildCare Guide

Finding the perfect child care facility for children can be a challenge. As a parent, you want them to have fun and learn, but you also want them to receive the best care possible. We are here to help. Whether you are looking for part time, full time, after school or drop-in, there are many options in Kalamazoo.

Note: It is the user’s responsibility to thoroughly investigate and research potential childcare providers. While we only list childcare options that claim to be licensed, we do not ask for proof of licensing to be in this guide. Inclusion in this guide does not indicate endorsement by KZOOkids.com.com. This Childcare Guide is for informational purposes only.


This guide is brought to you by our Title Sponsor: AppleTree & Gilden Woods Early Care and Preschool.

We are proud to partner with KZOOkids.com to bring you the 2016 Childcare Guide!

Our state-of-the-art schools are specifically designed to foster engaging and interactive learning that promotes Kindergarten Readiness and future school success.

We provide safe, educational infant and toddler care, full- and half-day preschool, Young 5’s and before- and after-school care for children ages 6 weeks through 12 years old. Music, fitness, technology, and foreign language enrichment classes are included in tuition.
