Welcome to the Labor and Industry Child Care Center. Our goal is to work with each family and child to promote growth and development in a safe and stimulating environment. We have been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) since 1999. Since 2003, our center has consistently received four star ratings from the Department of Human Services' Keystone Stars program which promotes child care providers who exceed state health and safety requirements.
