Hardin County Schools employees and Elizabethtown Community and Technical College full-time students will have a wonderful opportunity this summer to acquire dependable and safe child care.
Two facilities will house a childcare center for children (ages six weeks through five years old) of HCS employees and ECTC full-time students. One center will be at College View Education Center (521 Charlemagne Blvd., Elizabethtown, KY) and the other will be located at North Park Elementary School (1080 S. Logsdon Parkway, Radcliff, KY). The College View Education Center is the former GC Burkhead Elementary School building.
The child care centers will provide learning experiences for all children and will ensure that students are ready for kindergarten when that time comes.
The staff at the child care will be trained and go through background checks. ECTC students majoring in Interdisciplinary Early Childhood Education will also be at the center fulfilling required observation hours. It can also be an option for students in the ECTC work-study program. HCS students in the ExCEL program (teen parenting program) will also participate.
The HCS Childcare Center will be open even when school is not in session.
The application is accepted solely on a first-come, first-serve basis according to the time/date the application is received and based on the age and availability in the child's appropriate classroom. It does not guarantee a spot in the HCS Childcare Center.
If a child's age group becomes full, the parents will be placed on a waiting list and contacted if/when space become available.
