Casper College Early Childhood Learning Center
Casper, WY




The Casper College Early Childhood Learning Center (ECLC) provides life-enhancing opportunities for parents and children alike. Established in 1990, the ECLC serves as a preschool and childcare facility for the children of Casper College students and employees. It allows nontraditional students, those who did not begin college directly after high school, the opportunity to receive a higher education, by providing them with childcare. This gives parents the opportunity to train for a better job and a better paycheck, ultimately creating a better life for both parents and children. When all the long-term social and economic benefits and the multiplier effects are included, we find a total yield of $6.45 million in additional GDP and 99 jobs.
