Closed Until April 28 Due to CoVID 19

Message to Families:  Condon Child Care will be closed from March 25, 2020 until April 28, 2020.

We have spent the past few weeks researching and monitoring the rapidly changing COVID-19 health issue in our region and across the world. Every change we’ve implemented over the past couple of weeks has been put into place only after thoughtful consideration and extensive discussions with many who are invested in the well-being of the children entrusted to our care.  After reviewing the most recent mandate from Governor Brown, we have made the difficult decision to close until we are able to open again on April 28th, 2020.  We will update this page if we receive additional information that will effect this timeline.   Thank you for your understanding throughout this process and we look forward to serving our community again soon.

 

Stay safe and take care of your family.

 

 

Due to the CoVID 19 restrictions, we have postponed our activity night.  We will plan a new activity night once we can gather again.

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 condonchildcare@ortelco.net or (541) 384-4737.

The Foundation’s Board approved the grant in early February. With the funding, the Condon Child Care has raised more than $650,000 of the project’s estimated $800,000 cost.

“Thanks to these funds, the finish line is now in sight,” said Jennifer Bold, Executive Director of the Condon Child Care. “We’re grateful to the Ford Family Foundation for their tremendous vote of confidence in our Center and ongoing support for rural communities.”

The 4,000-square-foot Center will be located on the now vacant block across Highway 206 from the Condon High School. The facility will be built specifically 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.
