Biographical history

The Campus Child Care Cooperative was incorporated as a day care centre for forty children in 1965. The CCCC was a non-profit organization that provided pre-school programmes and care for the children of married graduate students. The parents shared the responsibilities and costs and also assumed the responsibility of administering the school, through an exective elected from the general membership, while teachers were responsible for the educational programmes. The day care was held in the basement of The Women's Residence until 1966 when they were moved off-campus to accomodate the University's expansion and need for the space the Child Care occupied. In 1969, with the increase in attendance of students needing full-scale day care facilities, the CCCC set up a committee to work for the establishment of a day care centre on-campus. Success did not materialize until 1975 when, after overcoming several obstacles and objections to their presence on-campus, the University Child Care Centre opened.
