FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEVELAND, WI —
To address the growing concern Lakeshore Technical College (LTC) is reporting among its students who are parents of school age children, it has received state approval to expand capacity at its on-site Child Care Center starting Monday, August 24. This new accommodation provides drop-in care for children ages 7-12 so their parents can continue attending classes on campus if their child’s school is closed.
“We are pleased to provide this convenient option to our students with young children in school. It allows our students to continue attending classes on campus, knowing their children are being cared for in a safe environment,” said Dr. Chris Schatz, dean of LTC’s health and human services division. “So many of our students are juggling work and family while attending LTC, and do not need additional obstacles preventing them from pursuing a better life through education.”
Students will need to call Denise Schroeder, the Child Care Center manager, at 920.693.1243 before dropping children off at the Child Care Center. Children must be picked up from the Child Care Center when the student’s scheduled in-person class and/or lab has ended.
The LTC Child Care Center’s traditional services for children 2-6 years old will continue to be available to LTC students and employees. These services also serve as an educational tool for students enrolled in its early childhood education program.
