On-site Child Care

Lakeland Community College provides an on-site childcare center for the children of students who are enrolled in credit classes at the college or at the Holden University Center.

Campus kids child care services are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Hours and availability are determined by staffing availability and student/teacher ratios set by state licensing agencies.

Located in the L-Building inside our Teaching Learning Center (TLC), the program serves children ages three to pre-K. The center requires that children be toilet trained at the start of the semester. Lakeland Community College student parent/caregiver will be required to provide their class schedule.

Lakeland's Campus Kids is licensed by the state of Ohio, accredited by NAEYC and is a Step Up To Quality Five Star Award center.
