In January 1978 The Sitka Day Care Center was established with eleven children. In four years, it had grown to one hundred and thirty children, which at the time operated three centers in three different locations.
November 1 st, 1983 Sitka Day Care Center leased the land from the Russian Orthodox Church for the next 55 years. In 1981 the lease was assigned to the City and Borough of Sitka, so they could obtain grant funding from the State which was spearheaded by Sen. Dick Eliason.
The center was then renamed after the Senator’s wife who was an advocate for children. On February 27, 1983, the Inaugural ceremonies were held for Betty Eliason Child Care Center.
