The B.C. Center Receives Grant from The Community Foundation For So. Central NY

SUNY Broome’s on-campus child care program has received $15,000 to help seek accreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and to partially restore lost government-sponsored child care subsidies for student-parents attending SUNY Broome. Unfortunately, campus child care that pays a living wage to its teachers and makes care affordable to students cannot operate solely on tuitions, fundraisers and declining government support. It requires investments from outside sources that recognize the positive impact of quality, accessible child care for students to be academically successful and workforce ready. Fortunately for the children enrolled at the BC Center and students attending SUNY Broome, The Community Foundation understands these challenges.
