Child Development Centers of the Bluegrass Break Ground for New Facility at UK
The Child Development Centers (CDC) of the Bluegrass has been
providing early childhood care for children in the Lexington area since
1958. This staple of the Lexington community is now expanding with the
development of a new center located right here on UK's campus located
off Commonwealth Drive near the UK Arboretum.
This new facility, expected to open in August 2012, will more than
triple the number of children being provided services. It will have a
capacity for 166 children from six weeks to five years old and
outpatient therapy programs serving additional children. The development
of this new center is a win-win for families and children of this area
as well as UK.
Quality education, whether at the preschool or
university level, is critical to the success of individuals and
communities. I am proud that we have such an excellent institution in
Lexington to start our children off in a positive way. This partnership
between the CDC, UK and UK HealthCare is sure to have a lasting impact
on the children in this community. After all, children are our future.
Our little helpers pose for a picture.
