POTTSTOWN PA – To provide what it calls “convenient and affordable child care” for students currently enrolled at Montgomery County Community College, officials at its West Campus said Wednesday (Oct. 31, 2012) they have formed partnerships with the Freedom Valley YMCA at Pottstown and the YWCA Tri-County Area, both in Pottstown.
“Access to affordable and quality child care near West Campus helps provide our students who are parents with the tools they need to enroll and successfully accomplish their higher-education goals. They then become role models for their children,” said Dr. Steady Moono, West Campus vice president. “This service enables the college to have a positive, multi-generational impact on many families in the local community.”
Both the YMCA and YWCA are located within three miles of the campus. Each facility will provide child care for college students based upon program guidelines.
The YMCA, 724 N. Adams St., will provide a child watch program for children of current college students from Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to Noon, as well as 5-8 p.m. while they are attending classes at the college or YMCA.
The YWCA, 315 King St., will provide child care for children ages 3 months to 5 years, Mondays through Fridays from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. for students currently enrolled at the college. The YWCA is a state-licensed child care center.
Fees and membership requirements will apply at both facilities.
