New Childcare Center Receives Donation
Rockland Community College received a $3,000 donation from KeyBank to benefit its Campus Fun & Learn Child Development Center, located in the new Theresa Morahan Simmons Center for children and families. The center will provide care and education to children 6 weeks-12 years old through activities in art, music, language, and more. It will accommodate 58 fulltime children, with the potential for more on a part-time basis, in addition to 24 after-school and evening openings, allowing parents to attend classes while their children are watched. Rockland Community College students who enroll their children will qualify for scholarships and subsidies for childcare tuition. The center will also allow education and psychology students the opportunity to gain experience working with young children.
