The largest employer in Arkansas City, Creekstone Farms opened an onsite childcare facility Wednesday.
The Walnut Valley Learning Center will provide childcare for up to 146 children. Employees who utilize the centers services will pay a monthly fee.
“We expect it to be a game changer because recall we don’t hire only manufacturing level employees which is the predominance of our employees, but we have managers, directors, vice presidents, CEO’s. This is something that we can offer that most cannot,” Douglas Mackay Chief Administrative Officer said.
