History:

 

We are a full-service, non-profit child care program located in North Asheville.  We serve 50+ families per year at two locations in North Asheville.

 

CSK opened in 2011 with 10 kids enrolled (including 4 staff kids), two ladies with great ideas, and a few supplies.  Since then, our enrollment has grown to fifty families, six staff members and two locations. August of 2019 will be Year Nine for Charlotte Street Kids and we can't wait for the adventure to start!

Things we like to brag about:​

 

  • In 2013, we partnered with Ira B. Jones Elementary to establish an on-site after school program there, providing free tuition to 30% of students who are identified as economically at-risk, access to enrichment for these kids, and transportation home at the end of the day.

 

  • We collaborate with other kid-positive organizations, such as Bricks4Kidz Lego Classes, Lango Foreign Language Classes for Kids, YWCA for swim classes, AmeriCorps/Project Power, and Kids Growing Up Strong Classes to promote healthy self-image and tolerance. We provide funding for families who cannot afford these essential programs.

 

  • Charlotte Street Kids is a LIVING WAGE Employer, certified by Just Economics of WNC.  We are proud to have joined the ranks of community-focused businesses that provide a living wage to their employees.  This makes us one of very few Living Wage Certified childcare providers in WNC.
