Construction underway on new early childhood center for Divine Providence Academy

Divine Providence Academy’s St. Joseph campus in Wright Township will have a new daycare and early childhood center in the fall. The classrooms will be in a new building that will also house St. Joseph parish offices.

The daycare and early childhood center will have an infant room that serves 12 students, a toddler room that serves 12, and a preschool/kindergarten room that serves 20 students. Before and after care will also be offered.

The new building is scheduled to open this fall. Construction began in late May, on the site where the old parish offices used to be. The old building was demolished in late April.

In addition to the campus at St. Joseph serving students through 8th grade, Divine Providence Academy also has a campus at St. Catherine in Ravenna that serves infants and toddlers through 5th grade, as well as offering before and after care and summer care. Learn more here.
