"This is an exciting week on NM campus. We've fundraised and planned for this project since 2021, and the community has stepped up to support us on more than one occasion," stated NMCC President
The campus-based childcare center will be designed to serve 47 children, from birth to eight years of age. NMCC students and staff will have priority enrollment for their children; secondary priority will go to UMPI students who need childcare, and the remaining capacity will be available to the community.
A licensed local provider will operate the facility and the selection process for that partner will begin in the coming months. Since the new center will be operated by a local provider, it will be an enhancement of the current services in
This initiative is made possible through combined funds from NMCC, The NMCC Foundation, the Maine State Legislature, and a grant from The Rodney & Mary Barton Smith Family Foundation.
The Center will serve as a "lab school" in support of the NMCC's early childhood education program which offers both a two-year associate degree and a one-year certificate-level option. The on-campus childcare center will provide an appropriate setting for the ECE majors to obtain the 450 field-experience hours required for the State of Maine Child Development Associate (CDA) credential. The College has added an additional faculty member in response to the growing interest in the ECE program.
