Davis Child Care Center is a private, state-licensed, non-profit program designed to meet the social, psychological, physical, and intellectual needs of children ages 6 weeks through 8 years. Davis Child Care Center is a program under the direction of the E. B. Davis Foundation and governed by a board of directors.
History: More than 100 years ago, Elizabeth Batchelder Davis left an endowment as well as the parcel of land that is now home to Davis Child Care Center with the specific instruction that this gift was to be used to serve the needs of children in the Oshkosh community. Due to the generosity of Elizabeth Batchelder Davis, the E.B. Davis Children’s Home Foundation began first as an orphanage, transitioned into a group home, and since 1990, has been a child care facility. The original E.B. Davis Home, also known as the “White House”, is shown above.
