Childcare center an investment in the community

Affordable childcare in Sturgeon Bay is not going anywhere after receiving the support of Door County Medical Center and other community partners. The Door County YMCA and Door County Medical Center joined forces earlier this month to help create the Door Community Child Development Center. Center director Alexis Fuller will operate the facility as a separate non-profit. The hospital will directly benefit from reopening the building for services, which had approximately 20 children of employees enrolled at the Barker Child Development Center before the YMCA originally decided to close the facility. Door County Medical Center President and CEO Brian Stephens says the partnership goes beyond their own needs.

In addition to keeping tuition rates affordable, Fuller hopes to have the Door Community Child Development Center pay teachers at a higher rate and rated by the state.
