Photos and Story by Chabre Vickers
Portland Community College’s Southeast Campus is excited to welcome the new YMCA Child Development Center to campus and is eager to start supporting students, staff, faculty and the community in an important way. Quality child care is an important component of student success and the team at YMCA offer state licensed care with incredible convenience found onsite at the Southeast Campus.
The Southeast Campus YMCA Child Development Center serves children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old and the flexible schedule available to parents is certain to meet the needs of our community. Center hours are from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
College and the YMCA leaders look forward to introducing the center to the students, staff, faculty and community in a grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony from 4-6 p.m., Monday, Sept. 28. All are welcomed to come see this new community resource and enjoy a mini tour of the new space.
For interested students, financial assistance is available in multiple forms. The Southeast Campus ASPCC offers childcare grants to students and is also participating in a college-wide Child Care Access Means Parents in School grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education. For more information about both of these options, call ASPCC at (971) 722-6262, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The YMCA also offers financial assistance as an additional way to support students, staff, faculty and community members.
