BATH, Maine (AP) -- A non-profit that runs two early learning centers and provides before- and after-school care in five schools is taking over two buildings at the former Brunswick Naval Air Station.
Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority Executive Director Steve Levesque said having child care options on site will be a good thing for current and future businesses at Brunswick Landing.
Officials announced this week that the transfer of two building has been completed. Family Focus hopes to have one of them back in operation by year's end.
Bob Parlin, executive director of Family Focus, says the organization intends to conduct a capital campaign for the renovations and create an endowment to assist families who could not otherwise afford pre-school education and care.
