WHO: Children (in Halloween costumes) and staff from the Child Care Center, parents, and invited guests from Rutgers-Newark and the Newark community.
WHAT: A celebration to mark the first year of operation of the Child Care Center which serves 30 children of students, faculty and staff at Rutgers-Newark. Following greetings and some remarks, the ceremony will include a rendition of “happy birthday” and other songs by the children, and a release of balloons. Tours of the center will be available.
WHEN: Oct. 31, 2:30 p.m. – 4 p.m.
WHERE: Rutgers-Newark Child Care Center, 75 Halsey St., Newark NJ
BACKGROUND: The Child Care Center, a state-licensed facility offering full-time care for children of R-N students, staff and faculty, opened in September 2011. The
year-round center is also open evenings to accommodate faculty and students who teach and attend class in the evenings and need extended child care options. Catholic Charities, an experienced provider of child care in the state, was selected through competitive bidding to operate the center, which incorporates a research-based curriculum coordinated with the Rutgers-Newark Department of Psychology and the Rutgers College of Nursing.
