History
1974 Wauwatosa Day Care and Learning Centers, Inc. was founded by Rosemary Krause and Janey Brandt. The Nativity Lutheran Church on 69th and Bluemound Road was the first site for Wauwatosa Day Care. The original license was for 20 children, amended at a later date to a capacity of 36 children, ages 2 1/2 to 6 years.
1975 The second location, at the Martin Luther Church on 92nd and Bluemound Road, opened as a nursery school 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., and soon became a full-day center licensed for 33 children, ages 2 1/2 to 6 years. As the need for infant care increased, we expanded and increased our enrollment to 47.
1983 The Wauwatosa School District was experiencing low enrollment and we opened a full-day child care center in the Underwood School on Potter Road licensed for 60 children, ages 2 1/2 to 12 years.
1984 Wauwatosa Day Care opened a full-day center in the Madison School licensed for 49 children, ages 2 to 12 years.
1990 With the need for infant/toddler care constantly increasing, the infant/toddler center was opened at 121st and Bluemound Road. This center was licensed for 26 children, ages 6 weeks to 3 years.
1995 We were approached to take over an operating center at our Glenview location. In January of 1995, we opened and were licensed for 85 children, ages 2 to 12 years. In March of 1995, we moved our administrative offices to the Glenview location. We also began transportation to and from local schools.
