COLLABORATION SERVICES:

  • Black River Child Care Center participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). This program is supervised by the U.S. Department of Agriculture/State of Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI). This requires that our center meet a number of rigid standards for nutrition and food handling. The program is audited to insure that all standards of the program are met. We offer a breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. All meals are prepared on site by our cook. The menus are planned monthly and are posted within the Center. 

  • Black River Child Care Center collaborates with local agencies so that children can participate in a variety of special needs programs available to pre-school children.
