LAIC Partners with EmBe to Enhance  Childcare Services

Lake Area Improvement Corporation (LAIC) has been working diligently to address the issue of childcare in Madison and Lake County.

The latest step is a partnership with a renowned expert in childcare and education services. EmBe has been announced as the operator of a new childcare facility planned for construction. It is set to open its doors in 2025.

The collaboratIon between LAIC and EmBe comes at a time when reliable childcare options are essential for working parents. This partnership aims to fill a void that has long impacted families’ ability to balance work and family life.

LAIC continues to work on providing the essential infrastructure to meet the widespread childcare needs of the community. They have secured a location for the facility on West Center Street, adjacent to six acres of parkland.

Designs for the new center have been drafted, a 14,000 square foot facility with a capacity to accommodate up to 140 children. Once built, the facility would be owned by LAIC, but leased and operated by EmBe.
