Erie Community College will open a day-care center for as many as 72 children in September on its North Campus in Amherst.
The center, which will seek national accreditation, will accept children who are infants to five years of age and will be staffed by child-care professionals. The minimum enrollment will be a half day.
Solicitations for bids recently were sent to 70 contractors.
The City Campus in Buffalo and South Campus in Orchard Park already have child-care centers.
