New Child Care Center Taking Shape

After more than 18 months of fundraising and years of planning, Condon’s new Child Care and Early Education Center is beginning to take shape. Contractor Rusty Rutherford and his crew recently set the trusses on the 4,000-square-foot Center, which is located across Highway 206 from Condon High School.

The facility is designed to meet the needs of children and families in the community with increased classroom and play space, a fully-equipped kitchen and cafeteria, improved parking and drop-off areas, and a better work environment for teachers and staff.

Construction is moving along on schedule and is expected to be completed in about 6-8 weeks. However, to reduce disruptions to students and families, Condon Child Care staff will wait to move until the Christmas holidays, when the Center is generally more quiet.

Although funding for the building has been secured, the Condon Child Care is continuing to raise money for age-appropriate playground materials and structures. To make an in-kind or financial contribution, please contact Jennifer Bold at or (541) 384-4737.
