Students and faculty can get child care on campus. Even though there is a waiting list, these facilities do their best to give students top priority.
Salt Lake Community College offers two locations for child care: South City Child Care Center, which is located on the South City Campus, and Eccles Early Childhood Development Lab School, which is located south of the Taylorsville Redwood Campus.
Roughly 35 to 45 percent of children who attend these child care facilities are children of SLCC students or staff; however, many students aren’t aware that these services are offered.
“I had no idea that there was child care on campus but that’s really good to know,” says Melane Dixon, a student at SLCC.
Both facilities are devoted to creating a positive environment for learning and development through active play. More details about these child care services can be found at www.slcc.edu.
