Cuts in state funding played a big part. The school could not keep up with the costs.
The Child Care Lab has been around for the last 20-years. Currently, about 30-children are enrolled; not as many as in the past. The numbers are down, but costs aren't. That's why Lake Land made the tough decision.
College leaders are now looking for a third party daycare to work with the current facility. The lab will close at the end of December. Lake Land hopes to find a replacement by January so there isn't too much of a gap.
