            Child care centers at Montgomery College's Rockville and Takoma Park campuses currently have openings for additional children and are accepting applications from the community.

            Features of the nationally accredited Montgomery College Child Care Centers include flexible scheduling; excellent teacher/child ratios; well qualified, experienced staff; an innovative curriculum; field trips; and enrichment programs, such as dance and computer.

            "With optimal child care at a premium, this is an opportunity for parents to place their kids in a high-quality setting that includes a full range of programs," said Linda Fowler, the College's child care services director.  Fowler notes that employees of Montgomery County Public Schools, as well as students, faculty and staff of Montgomery College are eligible for a discounted rate at the centers.

            The Rockville center, on the campus at 51 Mannakee Street, operates weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  At the Takoma Park Campus child care center, located at 7714 Takoma Avenue, hours are 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Montgomery College also operates a child care center at its Germantown Campus, but is currently at capacity for enrollment there.
