Community residents are welcome to visit Tuesday, August 8 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Each event will include tours of the facility, opportunities to view various classroom activities through observation windows, and refreshments.

"We're looking forward to sharing information about our program with families in the area who are looking for high-quality full- or part-time child care," said Nancy Kemna, center director. "We recently extended our hours of operation to better serve our working families who needed more scheduling flexibility, and we felt this was also a great opportunity to remind everyone about this hidden gem in the Champaign-Urbana community." 

Licensed through the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the Parkland College CDC is a demonstration laboratory school open to Parkland College students and staff and to community residents. It encourages whole-child education, offering a variety of experiences that help children develop good self-control, positive interactions with other children and adults, and an appreciation of a multicultural, multi-ethnic society.  

The CDC facility provides three large classrooms, each led by a head teacher and an assistant teacher who are professional staff at Parkland College. Its program features a low student-teacher ratio, fresh and tasty meals prepared on site, onsite public safety, spacious and secure green space, indoor play areas, an in-house library with lending services, and onsite enrichment opportunities on the Parkland College campus including visits to the Staerkel Planetarium.
