The campus of Richland Community College is making sure small children will be ready to succeed in school through a program that is seeing their facility being updated this summer.

The Children's Education Center is a twenty-year program at Richland Community College dedicated to early childhood development. The Center's Director, Kim Brummet, explains they serve children ages 2-12 over the summer and 2-5 during the school year. She explains the Center is a flexible option for families with varying budgets and schedules.

The Center's foundation is social skills. According to Brummet, reading and literacy are also focused on during those early years. Anything small children could be interested in, including numbers and colors, will be taught.

One of the advantages to the Education Center is the flexible times. Brummet notes families can set their child as either part or full time. The number of days kids attend can also be set by the parents.
