What We Do

Buttercup House Child Development Center was started in October of 1968 by the Altrusa Club of Borger as a community service project. What started with 2 employees and 8 kids has now grown to 25 employees and about 125 kids at three locations. We have Babyland at 107 Union St. They serve children birth to three years of age. Buttercup at 1106 E 6th, serves children birth till they go to school. And After School Program is located in the Crockett/Gateway gym at 400 Kaye St. and serves children who are in Kindergarten to age 13.  We work with other agencies such as CCS, CPS, Reg. 16, Child Care Licensing, CACFP and others to make sure your child is getting the help they need to become successful in school and beyond. All Buttercup employees must pass background check, fingerprinting, drug testing and complete CPR & first aid, new employee training and maintain at least 30 hour a year of training in child development. Every class follows a curriculum and does assessments on each child so we can make sure we are meeting their needs. Our goal is to provide quality child care while teaching children daily life skills. We serve a nutritious breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. We charge on a sliding scale fee as to help make it affordable to all families. That's where United Way funds helps us. It cost an average of $25 a day per child to operate yet we charge anywhere from $8.50 to $20 a day depending on income. We can be contacted at 274-4996.

Open from 6:30am to 6:00pm


How We Have Helped

We have a 2-year-old little boy that lives with both his parents and two older siblings. Both parents are attending college and working part time jobs to make ends meet. They struggle quite a bit. By providing childcare for the little boy the parents can go to college to better their families’ lives. We have also helped provide food and clothing for this family as well. In partnering with High Plains Helping Hand and Salvation Army the family has gotten much needed help for their family.
