I am writing on behalf of the Isabella Child Development Center of Mount Pleasant. We were established in 1969 to provide free preschool to needy 3 and 4 year olds of Isabella County. Our children are selected on the the basis of income eligibility and risk assessment. We have 14 children in our 3 year old afternoon class, and 14 children in our 4 year old morning class. We hope to grow to 18 in each class.
We also established our Thrift Shop in 1970 as a non-profit business to provide funds to support the preschool. We wanted to be as self-supporting - to stand on our own two feet, as it were, as much as we could. The Thrift Shop in currently located on Mission, 307 S. Mission. It is managed and staffed by volunteers and all net income goes directly to the preschool.
