Greenfield Community College Plans to Bring Back Child Care

Greenfield Community College is planning to build a child care center, bringing the services back to the school for the first time since 1999.  GCC’s president Bob Pura says the school is the only community college in the state without on-campus child care. He says the new center will provide care for children of students, faculty, and staff.

“It also gives our students who want to be teachers an opportunity for lab space right here on campus, so it serves multiple purposes and needs in the college for students, multiple purposes for the children who go to the center,” says Pura

Pura says the new center should open by 2016, and will cost between $1.5 million to $2.5 million to build. But he says the school has not yet secured funding for the project.
