    Area centers offer
child care options
By LAUREL STRAND
Of the Emerald
Student parents can choose
from a wide variety of daycare
options ranging from neighbor
hood cooperatives to Universi
ty-affiliated centers.
About 40 government-cer
tified and many uncertified
daycare centers are in the
Eugene/Springfield area, says
Cathy Briggs of Community
Coordinated Child Care, 4-C.
Facilities such as church pre
schools don’t require
certification because they care
for children only a few hours in
the morning.
Parents may call 4-C at
342-5456 for referrals to cer
tified centers. However, there is
no one place for information
about preschools and coopera
tives, so people should ask
neighbors about such facilities,
Briggs says.
Other daycare options in the
area include "latchkey” pro
grams for older children at some
elementary schools and about
170 family daycare centers run
by women in their homes.
Students often find the family
daycare homes more conven
ient than most centers because
of proximity to their neighbor
hood. Whereas "people have to
go out of their way (to get to
centers)," Briggs says. “Many
are not on bus lines.”
Also, homes tend to have
more flexible hours, including
nights and weekends, and may
provide care for infants.
Home rates start at $1 an hour
for infants and 73 cents an hour
for children three years and
older. Center rates are generally
higher while cooperatives are
free, Briggs says.
Government subsidies for
daycare are not available to
student parents.
The Child Care and Develop
ment Center and the EMU Child
Care Service on campus give
priority to University students.
Single parents have highest
priority, then married students
and parents from the communi
ty
Both programs are con
cerned with helping children
develop emotionally, intellec
tually and creatively, says coor
dinator Rachelle Katz. The
centers organize activities such
as field trips, games, art and
storytelling.
Hot lunches, as well as morn
ing and afternoon snacks, are
provided.
The Child Care and Develop
ment Center, 1511 Moss St.,
takes care of children from
three months to 12 years old.
The EMU Child Care Service, on
the ground floor of the EMU,
takes children from two-and-a
half to four-and-a-half years old
Rates at CCDC are $1.60 an
hour for children under three
years old and $1.12 an hour for
children three years and older.
The EMU center charges $1.12
an hour and 98 cents, respec
tively. A student subsidy is
available at the CCDC.
At the CCDC, all eight infant
spaces and 12 toddler spaces
may be reserved on a half- or
full-day basis. Half days run
from 7:30 a m. to 12:30 p.m. and
12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. All other
spaces are reserved by the
hour.
The EMU center also offers
evening child care from 6 p.m.
to 10 p.m. Monday through
Thursday.
Interested parents should
register their children at either
campus center Sept. 25 or 26.
People wanting to work at the
centers also should stop by at
that time
