Child Care Partners Studying Center Feasibility

Columbia Gorge Community College Child Care Partners is doing a study to determine the feasibility of a child care center on the school’s campus in The Dalles.  Program director Nancey Patten says the Ford Family Foundation provided the grant to do the feasibility study, but it will also provide information on overall child care needs in Wasco, Hood River, Sherman, Gilliam, and Wheeler counties.  Patten noted the child care center would have two goals:  provide affordable child care for families who are unable to place children in Head Start programs, and provide real-world instructional experience for students enrolled in CGCC’s Early Childhood Education program.  The survey is available at, and at libraries, schools, and other locations.
