Child Care Works for Somerset Campaign

Business relies on workers. Working parents with young children rely on child care. Moms and dads with young children cannot enter the workforce, complete training, or remain on the job without it.

DONATE NOW

The Child Care Works for Somerset Campaign aims to increase access to quality child care in Somerset by renovating and expanding The Learning Lamp Center for Children in Somerset Borough. The Keystone STARS top-rated STAR 4 center is housed in a building that initially served the community as a health club. The setup was never ideal for child care and includes underused space that can be transformed into new classrooms and indoor play areas.

Why support the Child Care Works for Somerset campaign?

We are committed to increasing access to high-quality child care in Somerset County. A multi-phased renovation and expansion of the center will more than double the number of children that we currently serve to a capacity of 134. The project will also result in the creation of 27 new jobs that include advancement opportunities such as a free college degree through Pennsylvania’s Early Childhood Education (ECE) Registered Apprenticeship Pathway.

Together, with investment by forward-thinking community partners like you promises to bolster the labor force, support business and industry, and strengthen the local economy — today, tomorrow, and for years to come.
