ABC Academy, Inc. was established in 1984 in a two classroom building in Jackson, Michigan.
Enrollment quickly grew, and the program moved to its new five classroom center at 800 Laurence Street in 1986. This center is licensed by the Department of Human Services (MDHHS) for 87 children, ages 2 1/2 weeks to 12 years.
In addition to the tuition based program this center offers a Great Start Readiness Program classroom for children 4 years of age. This program is free to qualifying families.

Our second center at 3210 Lansing Avenue opened its door in 1991, also caring for children ages 2 1/2 weeks through 12 years with a licensed capacity of 150 in the eight classroom facility. This location also offers three Great Start Readiness Program classrooms for qualifying 4 year olds. The Lansing Ave center is also a NAEYC accredited program achieving this status in July of 2012.
Our third location, 2111 Emmons Road, on the Jackson College Campus, began caring for children in 1997. Staff members of Jackson College formed a committee to develop an on-site child care center for the students of JC. While this center is open to the public, J.C. students receive top priority in filling spaces.
