Kids Can Community Center Celebrates a Year in a New Building, 115 Years Helping Kids, and a Bright Future


At Kids Can Community Center, their mission is to educate, engage, and inspire children through early childhood care and out-of-school experiences. And they have been doing that since 1908. Today they are a state-licensed childcare provider for children ages 6-weeks to 13-years old, offering full-day early childhood education and out-of-school programs.

During this two-part interview, CEO Robert Patterson spoke with Mike Hogan on “Live & Local” about the rich history of the organization, the new building they enjoy, and the future for both the kids and the community center.
