HERKIMER, N.Y. -- Herkimer College is giving students and staff a six-month heads up that childcare is going away.

The Board of Trustees voted to close the children's center, citing a loss of more than $1 million over the last decade.

A letter was sent to faculty and staff Wednesday -- alerting them to the change effective May 31 of next year.

The letter says that the financial loss for 2018 was $125,000 and in 2017 it was $137,000.

The president of the school says the closure will not impact the early childhood and childhood education degree programs.

A total of 28 children were enrolled this semester – 13 toddlers and 15 preschoolers. Of the 28 children, 2 were children of students.
