Child Care Program Closures

Out of an abundance of caution, Syracuse University has made the decision to close the Early Education and Child Care Center (EECCC) and Bernice M. Wright Child Development Lab School (BMW) starting Monday, March 16, with a planned reopening of Monday, March 30.

The EECCC and BMW are taking guidance from Syracuse University, and the New York State Office of Child and Family Services (OCFS) as well as local and state health officials.

Both programs notified families via email on Sunday, March 15, also stating “we deeply regret the disruption in child care for your family, however, this decision has been made with safeguarding the health, wellness and safety of your children and the entire EECCC and BMW family as a top priority.”

If any changes are made to the planned re-opening date of March 30, families will be notified as much in advance as possible, given the evolving COVID-19 situation both locally and globally.
