Celebrating 25 years of child care

The University Child Care Center held a rededication ceremony Wednesday afternoon in honor of its 25th anniversary.
A tree-planting ceremony at the center’s playground commenced the day’s events.
Steve Yussen, dean of the College of Education and Human Development, attended the ceremony and voiced his support for the center.
“I look forward to another 25 years,” he said.
Others in attendance echoed Yussen’s sentiments.
“This is a laboratory for research and teaching … it has a very important role,” said Robert Bruininks, executive vice president and provost.
The center, located at 1600 Rollins Ave. S.E., provides child care services to University students, staff and faculty members. The College of Education and Human Development oversees the center’s activities.
