Owens Findlay-area Campus Offers Child Care Center Services To Area Residents For Fall

FINDLAY - Area residents interested in receiving exceptional child care through innovative teaching and learning methods are invited to enroll their children in the Owens Community College Findlay-area Campus Child Care Center. The College's Child Care Center is currently accepting new students ages 2 ½ to 5 for this fall.

Located adjacent to the Findlay-area Campus, the College's Child Care Center is focused on providing quality and affordable child care for the children of faculty, staff, students and the community. The Owens Findlay-area Campus Child Care Center offers learning-centered child care, Monday-Friday, from 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

"Our program is devoted to enhancing the lives of children through developmentally appropriate curriculum, which emphasizes learning through play," said Stephanie Davis, Owens Coordinator of the Findlay-area Campus Child Care Center.

Owens' Child Care Center has two classrooms specifically intended to encourage learning and nurturing. Each room includes a learning center, which features computers, math and science, blocks and construction, creative art, reading, and pre- writing. According to Davis, these learning centers are designed to empower children by allowing them to make their own choices.

Davis added, "Creating an environment which places the highest level of focus on the child's development is possible because of our low ratio of children to adults and extremely caring staff."

In addition, the College's Child Care Center serves as an educational setting for the Early Childhood Education Technology Program. Students enrolled within Early Childhood Education Technology have the opportunity to apply knowledge, obtained within the classroom, in a real-world setting by working with children enrolled at the Child Care Center. Many child care teachers and directors throughout the surrounding communities have begun their instructional careers at the Owens Child Care Center.

Committed to offering the highest level of excellence in higher education, Owens has begun construction for a new Findlay-area Campus, which will feature a stand- alone $250,600 grant funded Child Care Center of 2,400 square feet. The new Findlay-area Campus and Child Care Center are scheduled for completion by Fall Semester 2005.

Owens Community College is the fastest-growing higher educational institution in Ohio with 28 consecutive semesters of enrollment increases. On the Toledo-area and Findlay-area campuses, Owens serves more than 44,000 credit and non-credit students making it the number one choice for new college students.
