Making Stevens County a Better Place to Grow Up
We exist to enhance the emotional, social, physical, intellectual, and language development of children and to help them gain confidence and self-esteem while learning to function in a group setting. We believe children learn through a structured environment as well as through play.
Morris Area Child Care Center (MACCC) provides both group and individualized care, which stimulates growth through a balance of self-directed and guided activities.
MACCC, the University of Minnesota, Morris and the West Wind Village (a senior retirement center) team up to offer the very young and the senior residents activities and experiences to enjoy and learn from each other. These intergenerational events between the residents of West Wind Village and the MACCC children create positive experiences for both groups. UMM service learning students help facilitate the events.
