If pre-school wasn't hard enough, some children now have the chance to start their education directly at college.
More often than not, their parents are students at Bluegrass Community and Technical College and attending classes upstairs.
The classes are far different in the Bluegrass Children's Academy on the lower floor, but plans are for education to begin there.
"We are going to go above and beyond what the state requires," BCA Director Rebecca Biddle said Wednesday following the ribbon-cutting ceremony. "They're going to grow physically, emotionally and cognitively. I believe this is a place where dreams really will come true."
"What better place for these children to start their education than on their college campus," said JoEllen Reed, the college's community specialist.
