The Crawford County Foundation, Inc. (CCF) is a not-for-profit organization formed by representatives of the areas leading employers in response to a growing demand for dependable childcare. The mission of the CCF is to reach the greatest number of children, youth and adults in Crawford County by supporting educational and physical development through guidance and financial support.
Over the course of two years, the CCF raised over $800,000.00 to build this state-of-the-art childcare facility that would provide a safe, fun, learning environment to children while keeping rates at or below market.

The All Aboard Learning Center is a reflection of what a community can do when businesses, individuals and families come together to make a dream a reality. All Aboard Learning Center is currently seeking accreditation through the NAEYC.
