The Allens purchased the center in August of 1998. The center was a  state licensed facility that could accomodate 24 students. On their  first day of operation, the Allens had 18 in attendance. The center had  an additional room that was unfinished and within three months, the  Allens completed the room and the Department of Human Resources in  Montgomery amended their license so the center could accommodate a total  of 36 children. God blessed the center abundantly and within a month of  the new license capacity, the center was full.
 

As time progressed, the Allens knew that an expansion was needed to  accommodate all the requests for quality childcare they had received, so  in 2000 an addition was added to the facility that more than doubled  the existing floor space. The new space provided enough room for 80  students at which time their license was again amended, and since the  addition, the center has consistently operated at capacity.
