Project Description

Construction of a new 46,600 sq. ft. Early Childhood Education (ECE) Center, ECE Training Hub and Community Hall w/recreational facilities open to the public. The ECEC will provide early learning for low-income children and training for new ECE providers annually. The project will be built on a vacant lot that is part of the new Clifton Community Resources Campus, 26-acre integrated education and wellness campus which will also include a new County library. The new Clifton Community Resource Campus (CCRC) aims to address this childcare and ECE services shortage and provide other community amenities to its residents. The campus will be located on a 20-acre lot and include a 22,690 sq. ft. ECE center, an 11,944 sq. ft. ECE training hub, and an 11,970 sq. ft. gymnasium/community hall to allow for family-friendly, safe recreation and community events. The ECE Center will provide 154 early childhood education seats and create 44 jobs. The ECE training hub will help individuals obtain the qualifications and certifications needed in early childhood education. The training hub will establish 15 jobs and help generate a pipeline of licensed ECE childhood educators for years to come. The gymnasium/community hall was combined with the ECE services as the community felt the parks were not safe and they needed an area for kids to recreate. It is anticipated the gymnasium/community hall will also host 95-125 exciting community events each year including concerts, holiday celebrations, sporting events, school dances, and more. Hence, the CCRC achieves the goal of helping working parents have access to needed childcare and providing a place for the community to gather and enjoy for generations. Additionally, there will be a 25,000 sq. ft. building constructed for the new Clifton library next to the CCRC. While the library was not part of the NMTC project, this will be made possible as an impact of the NMTC financing, allowing the County to use other funds to complete the library.
