Child Care

Child Care

Hays Area Children’s Center offers year-round child care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Additionally, we offer a summer program for school-aged children.

HACC is licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and provides quality care to all children, including those with special needs.

Highly qualified teachers combine outstanding teacher-child interactions with early child development strategies.

Children also receive assistance with medical needs from a registered nurse.
