Missouri S&T will establish a child care center on campus after winning a multimillion-dollar grant as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act Child Care Plan.
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson announced on Oct. 2 that Missouri S&T will receive $2,710,252 to provide child care to the Rolla region.
Missouri S&T interim Provost Stephen Roberts, the grant’s lead author, says the facility will transform Rolla and Phelps County into a more desirable home for university students and employees.
The Little Miners Child Care Center will be located at 1207 N. Elm St. in the Southwestern Bell Cultural Center. Missouri S&T will use most of the grant funding to remodel the building to meet health and safety standards. The facility will enroll up to 76 children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.
