Child care at Berkshire Community College is available at the Norman Rockwell Early Childhood Center, so named because of the artist's sensitive portrayal of the world of children. Services are provided for the children of BCC students, faculty and staff.

The Center is open Monday through Friday from 7:30AM to 5:30PM . This time period allows parents to attend classes and work while their children are participating in comprehensive, educational, and recreational programs.

This Center has earned accreditation by the National Academy of Early Childhood Education (N.A.E.Y.C.) for having demonstrated substantial compliance with nationally recognized criteria for high-quality early childhood programs.

The children receive snacks in the morning and afternoon, and can share meals with their parents.

Social workers provide extra help for children with special needs. 

Children from age 15 months to 7 years of age are eligible for the program.  

For more information, visit the Center or call 413-443-3487.

Family day care programs - child care in licensed homes throughout the area - are also available for children of all ages. For more information about this service, call 413-499-4660, Ext. 3060.

Parents pay a reasonable fee for childcare services based on their income and number of hours of care needed.

Intern and work-study students are encouraged to apply to work at the Center. We guarantee you will find this to be an extremely rewarding experience.
