Providing Child Day Care Services in Milwaukee since 1983

St. Ann Center’s licensed and award-winning childcare programs keep your child safe, happy, and excited about learning, with a bonus: friendships with adults in our day program as they interact over fun and educational activities. Research shows intergenerational care can give children a developmental advantage of 10-12 months, both in learning skills and in emotional intelligence, over their peers from traditional daycares.

Children’s Programs Offered, by Age:

St. Ann Center’s experienced, caring staff provides the support and security children need at every step of their development. For infants and toddlers, newly aware of themselves and others, that’s the security, and a sense that their world is a caring place. For preschoolers, it’s loving and guidance as they start to to establish friendships and prepare for academic learning. Schoolchildren, working hard in class, need time to exercise and support for academic learning, and challenging activities. Young adolescents, looking to the future, get the mentoring to ground them in skills needed to seek a first job or a scholarship.

St. Ann Center understands what a gift babies are! When your family is ready to take the step into childcare, you can feel good knowing that St. Ann Center’s teachers are here to help your baby feel loved and secure while exploring and learning about themselves and the world around them.

Your child is ready to begin growing to their greatest potential through social, academic, physical, and creative activities, from swimming to the ABCs. Our curriculum celebrates each child’s uniqueness and incorporates regular intergenerational activity time with the adults in our care—music, stories, art projects, simple games and more.

Childcare FAQs

The waitlist length can vary widely by both campus and age group; we recommend that parents (or parents-to-be) reach out to the campus they’re interested in at least a couple of months before they expect to need care for a child. At times, there may be no wait list in some classrooms.

Childcare rates vary by the child’s age and frequency of use; some families qualify for publicly subsidized care. Please call the childcare office at the campus you’re interested in to determine the rate for your child’s care.

The Buddy Program is a volunteer program for children ages 11-15 that mentors them, giving them a chance to practice future job skills and to interact regularly with older adults.
