Howard Community College (HCC) operates a Children’s Learning Center that supports and serves children ranging in age from eight weeks to five-years old. All children must have up-to-date immunizations and infants must receive the first series of immunizations before they can be accepted.
HCC students are given first priority in enrolling their children, after which enrollment will be extended to children of faculty and staff. Afterwards, and only if space is available, registration will be opened to the community.
Infant care, ages eight weeks to 24 months, is available on a five-day/full-day basis. For faculty and staff whose children are 24 months or older after September 1, full-day care is available on a three- or five-day per week basis.
As part of the registration process, a non-refundable registration fee is assessed annually for all children of staff, faculty, and community members, and for children of HCC students who are enrolled in classrooms designated for children ages two years and older. Information pertaining to the operation of the Children’s Learning Center is available in the Children’s Learning Center Handbook.
