CLK Childcare

This is a licensed childcare program for children six weeks until ready for kindergarten. We are a non-profit program with all family fees going toward staff, food and supply costs.

Our Philosophy

We are dedicated to providing a safe, warm and loving environment that encourages children to learn and grow at their own pace. We understand the role we play when you entrust us to care for your child and we strive to do this by providing caring, professional staff, enriching environments, daily routines and activities in areas of language, math, science, art, music and more to promote each child’s individual growth and development. We want to be an extension of your home and be part of the team leading to your child’s success.

Eligibility & Scheduling

This center is open to all parents and grandparents of CLK school employees, as well as, Keweenaw Aspirus Hospital and U.P. Health Systems Employees. We offer flexible scheduling and payment options.

(With pre-enrollment depending on availability) Our program does have an option that is open to students in Junior Kings for an after school care and early release Wednesdays program.
