Wauwatosa Campus Striving to Reduce Barriers to Education for Students
Milwaukee, Wis. – Bryant & Stratton College today announced it will open a Children’s College at its Wauwatosa Campus at 10950 W. Potter Rd., offering students a unique program for their children while they attend classes.
Construction is underway to build the facility and the new Children’s College is set to open for the fall semester starting September 11, 2013. The Children’s College will be a safe and nurturing environment, promote learning and provide hands-on enrichment activities.
The learning center, for children ages 3-12, will occupy 1,900 square-feet on the Wauwatosa campus. The new Children’s College will operate Monday through Saturday during scheduled classes. The campus is planning an open house for August 15, 2013.
“Bryant & Stratton College is dedicated to reducing the barriers for access to education, and the new Children’s College is an opportunity for parents to attend school while providing ‘side-by-side learning’ with their child,” said Lois Trongard, Business Office Director of the Bryant & Stratton College Wisconsin Campuses. “We continue to look for ways to accommodate our students, and the new Children’s College will give parents ‘peace of mind’ while they attend classes.”
According to Trongard, one of the top hurdles for many students wanting to attend or continue college to pursue their career is a lack of child care.
The Children’s College will be available to enrolled students during their scheduled classes. Some of the programs at the Children’s College include classes in technology, art, dance, theater, nutrition and health. The cost will be $1,000 per term for full-time students (12 or more credits), $600 for part-time students and emergency hourly rates will be available on a limited basis. In the inaugural term of the Children’s College, Bryant & Stratton College is awarding grants of $600 and $800 to continuing and new full-time students, significantly reducing the cost for the fall term.
Bryant & Stratton College’s Wauwatosa Campus services more than 635 students offering Bachelor’s and Associate’s degrees in Business, Criminal Justice, Human Resource Specialist, Health Services Administration, Information Technology, Medical Administrative Assistant, Medial Assisting, Nursing and Paralegal Studies. The College has two other Wisconsin campuses located in Milwaukee and Bayshore Town Center in Glendale. The Wisconsin campuses have an 87 percent job placement rate for its 2011-12 graduates.
