Nanuet resident and SUNY Rockland Professor William McGregor donated $10,000 to the college's new Campus Fun & Learn Child Development Center.


Theresa Morahan Simmons Center for Children and Families, SUNY Rockland; Professor William McGregor and Kyle Miller, Campus Fun & Learn Child Development CenterLast month, SUNY Rockland Community College received a $10,000 check to benefit its Campus Fun & Learn Child Development Center, which opened last September. The donor was Nanuet resident William McGregor, who is an associate professor of mathematics at the college and an executive board member of the center. "Early childhood education is one of the most important things we can do for each other as a community," McGregor says. "If we teach our children properly at the start, we raise achievement and lower conflict in our society."

   The Campus Fun & Learn Child Development Center provides full and part-time care and education to infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, with instruction in language, nature, science, cooking, literacy, art, music, and more. It also offers before and after school and half-day and vacation care to school-aged children. Busing to the before and after school programs is provided by East Ramapo and Ramapo Central School districts. Housed in a state-of-the art building, the Theresa Morahan Simmons Center for Children and Families, the center is open year-round to all Rockland residents.

   "We have high standards, and we tend to aim higher than what the state requires," says Kyle Miller, director of the center, citing staff requirements and child-to-staff ratios as points of pride. McGregor's donation will help the center continue to offer its services without cutting back on quality, Miller says.
