Wor-Wic Receives Child Care Challenge Award
April 28, 2008
The on-campus child development center at Wor-Wic Community College recently received the 2008 child care challenge award from the Women Legislators of Maryland.

The award recognizes businesses and organizations that have developed solutions to child care or committed resources to designing a program for children of working parents. Selection is based on the effective use of scarce funds, care for under-served communities and innovative programs to aid working parents. Wor-Wic’s center was nominated for the award by Del. Jim Mathias, D-38B.

The child development center at Wor-Wic opened in the fall of 2006 to enable more area residents who have children to attend college. The center offers quality educational programs for children from 2 to 5 years old during the day and for children from 2 to 12 years old in the evening. Sandra L. March of Salisbury has been director of the center since its inception.

Parents can register their children now through May 12 for the summer program offered from June 16 through Aug. 22. The 10-week summer program, which is designed for children ages 6 through 12, will be held Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Children enrolled in the program participate in a variety of activities planned around fun and educational weekly themes.

Child care services are provided for children of Wor-Wic students and employees, as well as local residents on a space-available basis.
