Public-private partnership in Cabarrus County center creates affordable, quality child care – WSOC TV

CONCORD, North Carolina — A ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday marked the opening of the Lockhart Child Development Center, a unique solution to a challenge facing many families — affordable child care.

The collaboration between Cabarrus County, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, Cabarrus Chamber of Commerce and All Saints Episcopal Church has fueled the development of Lockhart’s high-quality model that always fits on a budget.

“We want (families) to also have their child in a quality center while they try to learn and be a better person in the community,” said Waynett Taylor, the center’s chief executive.

About 80 children are enrolled at the center and plan to add more. Families pay between $200 and $300 per month depending on the age of their child.

“There shouldn’t be any kind of barriers to getting quality care for your child,” said Andrew Weston, a father whose child attends the centre.
