Illinois Valley Community College

Going to college is a time commitment, one that parents of young children may simply not be able to pull off. However a new option at Illinois Valley Community College could be a saving grace.

A Child Activity Center staffed by the Illinois Valley Y will soon open at IVCC. The short-term watch center will be open for IVCC students as early as next month. The Y will charge IVCC $50 an hour with a schedule determined on an on-going basis.

A recent focus group with students showed childcare as a barrier to enrollment. IVCC President Jerry Corcoran thinks the child center can accommodate nearly 20 children at a time.
