Day care options for college students with children

Reagan and Amy Urban YMCA Child Development Center at LSC-North Harris Child Watch Program Participants

Four-year-old Reagan Urban and her mom, Amy Urban, 33, a Lone Star College-North Harris nursing student, enjoy a rare dry blue sky day in usually hot humid Houston. Reagan was the first child to be enrolled in the Child Watch program provided by YMCA Child Development Center at Lone Star College-North Harris. The unique and affordable day care program, one of three provided by the center, allows drop-in care-for children ages 18 months to four years-of students attending classes at the LSC-North Harris campus. Students can match their day care needs with their class schedule. Dr. Steve Head, president of LSC-North Harris, is passionate about removing barriers that might prevent students from completing their higher education goals. Offering the new child care program has allowed more than 41 students to ease their stress of balancing school and family. For more information, call 281.765.7730.
