Campus child care centers have served two distinct purposes. Originally centers emphasized education, functioning as a lab school for teacher training and research. Later, centers emphasized service, functioning as a support system providing child care for children of students, faculty, staff, and community parents. Recently centers have served a combination of education and service.
The major purpose of this study was to describe community college child care centers in terms of selected operational and physical features.
