Child Care


Students’ need for child care is an ongoing concern for all of us, and although it is not possible to provide on-campus service, Clinton Community College has two options for supplemental care. If you are eligible, a back-up resource may be in place at a time when you need one. These day care providers are the YWCA for the “well” child and Mercy Medical Center for the “sick” child. The YWCA takes children ages 2 - 6 who are toilet trained. In addition, they also take infants from 6 weeks to 2 years on a full-time or part-time basis. Mercy Medical Center accepts infants through age 12. Additional child care options are available in the Student Development area. If you have questions, contact the Admissions Office.


College Closings, Winter Weather


The basic guiding principle in this decision is that we will make every effort to keep the college open. You can assume the college is open unless you hear otherwise on one of the radio/television stations that we contact to announce a closing. Those are KCLN, KROS, KMAQ, KUUL, WCCI, KMXG, WOC, WLLR, WKBF, WHTS, WVIK, KCOQ, KJOC, WSDR, KQAD and KWQC-TV. As with any other day of college classes and activities, you must use your best judgment in determining whether to come to the campus or not. There will be times when, based on weather or other factors, we will close the college. These will not occur that frequently, however, and again, you may choose to make a decision not to be on campus even when we have opened. A weather information telephone number will also announce closings. The number is (563) 244-7125. You can also check the CCC's Facebook new window page for closing information.
