Salina Child Care Association

Elaine Edwards, Executive Director

Salina Child Care Association has provided quality, affordable early childhood education and child care for over 46 years.  Of the families using our services, 70% are low income and unable to access our program without some type of financial assistance. Over the years, support from the Greater Salina Community Foundation has allowed some of those children who “fall through the cracks” to benefit from scholarships for early learning opportunities so they’ll enter kindergarten ready to learn.

Foundation support has also provided us with funding for developmentally appropriate learning materials, infant cribs, classroom computers and scholarships for staff continuing education.

We have greatly appreciated the support of the Greater Salina Community Foundation, as it has made a difference in the lives of many young children in our community.
