Open to the community and conveniently located for MCC students, faculty, and staff, the Child Care Center provides care for children from 8 weeks to 5 years of age. During the summer, programs are available for school-age children up to age 11. Parents may choose to sign up their children for as little as two days per week and up to five full days, Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Children are offered a nurturing and educationally stimulating program, including music, art, gym, stories, and activities involving shapes, colors, counting, and more. A major emphasis is placed on cooperation, turn taking, and problem solving. The Center is equipped with three large fenced-in play yards with plenty of age-appropriate playground equipment.
